Games freezes at start-up if -n command line option to connect to a specific server is used.

On 1.6.0, using the command line option "openttd -n [server ip]" works fine.
On 1.7.1 or 1.7.0, using the same command line to connect to the exact same server (after adjusting the version of the game running on the server to match) results in a freeze at the Scanning NewGRFs screen.
This task depends upon
