0000747: [98e-r3417] Unexpected clear color at the ends of names
The implicit color cancellation at the end of player names sometimes appears where it maybe shouldn't.
Color your name, e.g. 'name \cgPlayer'. Then try to append a character to it, e.g. 'eval + $name "\*" name'. The asterisk will be uncolored, unlike 98d.
This effectively reduces the maximum length of names when trying to append a character, because the no-color code takes two characters.
No tags attached.

The terminating "\c-" is forced in the CVar itself, I will address this along with 0002303.
