Server not removing disconnected players

I just had a look at the server browser to see if anyone was playing, and I saw one person in the official server. Upon joining, I discovered that that one person was me, from the session a few hours ago.
So the server needs to be able to detect when people have disconnected, or at least add in an afk kick timer.

I actually think someone was probably in there before you.

The player list updates about every two minutes, so maybe they were there just a few minutes before?
Tell me if you know this to be impossible.

They're not in robo, so that money must have come from idling.

I see. that is super strange.
That is definitely a bug.

Can you tell me about how you disconnected from the game?
was it a normal disconnect?

I can't remember exactly. However, I do know that I was getting packet loss messages a couple times during the session. I'm assuming that the server removes the client from the list of players when the server receives the message that the client is leaving? Of course, this won't work if that message never makes it to the server :P

EDIT: A couple other things I noticed. There's a bunny ontop of Robosaru even when there's no bunny controlling it, and after using the /kill command the icons above boxes for autopay don't revert to zero.
