When you join a company of a server with a password, and wait 10 seconds, it 'times out' by the looks.

But instead of presenting this in a nice error message, the password dialog is closed, the server dialog is, and even the multiplayer dialog is.

This is very confusing if you do this for the first time (in years), and made me go: HUH?

Some love and user friendly reply would be much welcome.
This task depends upon

In 1.1.4-RC1 I've been waiting for more than two minutes for it to time out, but it never happened.

Was not what it seems. Only happen on Luukland servers, only when named Player. They seem to close your connection, which doesn't trigger an error client-side. One can wonder if that should be fixed, but the original bug report is false, and only happens on customized servers. Sorry about that, I should have verified that ;)
