If they *get* disconnected, it's a bug.
If they disconnect *themselves*, while other players are picking a nation,
it's regarded as their own fault.  If you don't want to wait for
everybody to pick a nation, the server thinks you don't want to play,
and throws you out.

This is annoying but I can't think of a good solution.
Allow players to join while in this state?
