The chance of this being a MUSHclient bug is probably fairly slim, but right now I am pursuing every option in trying to solve the following problem:

1) Some days ago, I upgraded our PennMUSH server to 1.7.5 p5 when the p5 patch came out.

2) The next day I noticed, which had never happened before, that occasionally (far from every time the command was used) certain globals end up with a chunkc of extra blank lines in the middle of the output.

3) Some discussion at M*U*S*H narrowed things down to very probably being caused by the table() function, as it was used in all the problematic globals, and the extra blank lines occured after a table() had been evaluated.

However, although table() was changed in p5, so far the developers have not been able to find anything on the server side of things that could be causing these extra blank lines. So, I figured I'd check here and see if anyone has any insight into the problem, if MUSHclient is perhaps dealing with the changes in a peculiar fashion. So far, it has only occured for people using MUSHclient, but since we're in development we only have a very limited number of players logging on, so that could be misguiding.

There are some posts about blank lines being sent erroneously - a known bug - under certain circumstances, particularly with aliases.

The circumstances may not apply, however try searching for this issue - and look in the bugs list.

Okay, looks like it isn't MUSHclient at least, as we managed to reproduce it in SimpleMU. Must be a server-side change that they haven't been able to find then.
