The demo unfortunately began recording after the ghost flag occurred so there
is no way to analyze the sequence of events leading up to it.  It is extremely
likely that the packet containing a CTF event (SCORE_DROP) was lost and then
later resent.  By the time the packet was resent, the client had already
received another CTF event (SCORE_RETURN), which left a flag AActor in an
orphaned state.

The proper course of action would be to make the server responsible for
spawning the AActors for the flags that players are carrying instead of
allowing clients to spawn them on their own.  A more robust AActor update
mechanism would help greatly and is a planned future improvement.
