I'm afraid that the same thing happens to me. I don't play FFA much anymore..... so it doesn't happen much. But often times, when I'm jumping forward and firing GM... or when my client lags.. I blow myself up.
I reported this on sourceforge.. but I'm not sure that it was "fully fixed" (it was worse before... but it's still not 100% fixed).

I didn't bother upgrading since nothing in it really worthwhile for me. 1.7g0 works fine for me.

So besides this negative prospect, anything cool about 1.7g2?

I have been playing with it since its release, and I have not noted that particular aspect. I have noticed that other bullets seem to miss me more often. Not sure if you would consider that a positive aspect or not, but my ability to avoid being shot has improved.

I am also very fond of the blinking killed/killer in the transcript window. It has made my hunting much more productive.

I like 1.7g2 because I can make the radar huge. Now, when I play with the old radar screen, everything looks tinnnnnnnnnny. The big radar is tons better for CTF. :D

Ohh yeah! I forgot the SB stuff. The new SB's totally rock. I didn't know that the explosions changed.. but then again, I've been playing with this client ever since Patlabor posted G1 (like a month ago)... so I've forgotten how G0 looked (minus the huge aiming sights.... ick). :)
