Not sure if it was just because I was playing on a server with high latency...
On some servers, not all, the spawn timer starts at -9:00 or something (thats right, negative) and keeps counting furhter into the negative...the only way to spawn is to go to spectator, and select team and class again...

The strange thing is, since it started its happened every time on a few servers, and they didnt do it before, but some remain fine...

heard of this before?

AFAIK, simply pressing "forward" should let you respawn - just what exactly is causing this, I don't know, but since it means instant respawns, it's extremely annoying as it messes up gameplay.

It is on maps that dont have a respawn time set. So pressing a movment key makes you instantly respawn.

it should work if any of the previous maps had a time set, because then this value for the variable is kept until a server restart or it is overridden by a new value... maybe someone set it to 0 intentionally in map configs? This is a complete no no. Nobody can keep gaming up without break. You do not want to keep pressing the wasd forever and play nonstop. Even if you do not press forward and spawn immediately, there is a certain mental pressure to do so, and if you do it you do something that your brain cant actually cope with, the stress will get to much and you will drop your concentration level below what is actually necessary to play a computer game and just carry on as a mindless zombie with headache. At least thats what I think of instant respawns. The quick change of location from dieing and respawning when you have instant respawn is unbearable.

I might have fixed this in the SVN version, although I don't quite recall. It also reverts to default values for respawn style and timer among other things if nothing is set in config.
