 When is it updated? Only when thaw packet arrives?

 Old packet has two conflicting uses. Freeze stops all network traffic
(collects it to buffer) until thaw. Freeze packet itself is affected
by this!
 This was extremely bad for games with alternating movement. Of
course, there is alternating movement option in S2_0.

 Sorry, didn't remember ReportFreezeFix affected S2_0 also. Could you
mention branch you are referring to in future reports.
 So, if we ever fix the main compatibility issue between 2.0.9 and
current S2_0, this problem will actually affect 2.0.10 compatibility
with all earlier 2.0.x versions.
