Fixed a serious crashbug buffer overflow in the VoIP code.
Servers should no longer kick you for cheating (unless, of course, you're really cheating).
Fixed the crappy colors on the splash screen (hey, it was bothering me!).
Fixed CacheRecords.ucl handling (various strange bugs, like no gametypes or maps being listed, etc).
Various client and server crash fixes.

Fixed redeemer reticle being affected by HUD opacity setting
Fixed skaarj playing taunt anims
Make sure no wrap around on multikill numbers
Call takefallingdamage() on wall dodge to prevent it being used as an exploit for avoiding damage on long falls (can still use wall dodging anywhere you could before, you just take damage if you are falling too fast).

Fixed zoom instagib beam positioning
Improved hidden lightning gun beam positioning
