The EO client expects the current "sequence start" value to be sent in the Account_Reply packet. Because the byte is completely missing, the EO client instead reads the ascii value of "O" from "OK" as the new sequence start number, which can break the packet sequence values.

Because EOSERV currently uses sequence numbers longer than a single byte, additional logic is needed here to reset the sequence start value to something in range (between approximately 0-240).

Fixed in commit b4baec7.

This has implications for the correctness of third-party clients.

Updated Status to CLOSED, FIXED
