[ioquake3] Sys_StringToSockaddr problem connecting to server

Let me tell you why I modified the source code to ioquake3. The real reason
I had to make a modification was to force the dedicated server binary to
send heartbeats to the master server(s) for the case where the server
variable "dedicated" is set to 1. In Urban Terror 2.6a, the "dedicated"
server variable is read-only, so I cannot change it. It is set to 1. The
plain-vanilla ioquake3 code sends heartbeats for the case where dedicated is
set to 2, but not in the case where dedicated is set to 1.
Since I had to make this change, I decided to make other simple changes as
- On Linux use ~/.urt2 as config directory instead of ~/.q3a.
- On Windows use "Application Data/UrT2" instead of "Application
Data/Quake3" to store configs.
- Make fs_game be q3ut2 by default, so as to prevent having to specify "+set
fs_game q3ut2" on the command line or in shortcuts/startup-scripts.
- On Linux, do not build against OpenAL libararies by default. Many Linux
systems do not have OpenAL installed, and with the plain vanilla build I
could not launch ioquake3 without first installing OpenAL on these older
That is the extent of my changes. Again, the diffs were attached to my
