Rabbit hunt with two players gets confused when both die

I've seen this several times. When two players are alone on a rabbit hunt map (Fox Burrow), and both are killed, the server can lose track of who the rabbit is. I believe the most common occurrence is when the rabbit dies first, killing the hunter (with a residual shot.) The result is that the rabbi...
