Feedback based on rev. 634

This is a bit hard to replicate as I'm not 100% sure on what causes it but it seems to be like this:

When the player is wounded and incapacitated (ACE wounds system with the flashing black screen), squad member #2 (or the next one if 2 is dead etc) takes command of the squad, if the player then dies from his wounds and respawns as a team member he is not recognised as squad leader.

So for example, when you respawn and issue command to "fall back into formation" he actually says "all follow 2" or "team red follow group" or something like that. Then your team forms up on squad member #2 (for example) as if he is the squad leader. You can't get them to follow you, you have to keep issuing "move to" orders to get them to move.

A fresh Respawn at base (i.e not respawning as a current team member) seems to reset it sometimes, or disbanding the 'fake' squad leader can work too.

I have no real idea how to fix this one :)

This one is an easy fix: I put an extra SelectLeader in the respawn script that makes sure the player is squad leader after respawn.

This is really an ACE problem, however, so it's probably a good idea to report it there as well.

Great that you fixed it, it's really annoying. Will report to ACE too.
