I have changed the fix for this bug. I have removed the upper limit on latency, and simply disabled the latency push-up entirely for this release.

the command queue length algorithm makes the queue far too long. while this adoption mechanism was originally designed to improve gameplay on high latency networks, the latency push-up happens even on very low latency setups, namely when i play vs. myself on localhost. as the latency constantly increases, it hits every number late in a game and 20s of delay was hit in a testrun of less than half an hour.

i limited the latency push-up to no more than 30 frames (that is 2s) but i assume most games will hit this with no need so this is only a very poor hack.
