Most of the time, entering the player menu to change your
name does not work for me while my client is logged into
a server.

    This was actually added as a feature, to prevent what is
    called stat-whoring. A player, if they died before the
    rounds end, would change there name, so they wouldnt lose
    any ladder points.

    Oh. That's understandable. Then it is a bug that I sometimes
    CAN change my name. Or is it allowed to change names in
    between rounds?

    It is usefull to be able to change your name in game, so
    maybe if you were only allowed between rounds.

    Name changes during the round are STILL possible with the
    PLAYER_1 console command ( a cvs log entry marked that as
    fixed ) and entering/leaving the player setup menu.
    Suggested solution: server accepts all name changes, but
    only applies them at the end of a round. Undo whatever
    causes the player name change menu not to work.

    Fixed. It's now always possible to change your name, but it's
    only transmitted to the server between rounds (for old servers)
    or the servers only apply the change between rounds (for new
    servers).
