If server fails to read ruleset and exit()s, client will just returns
to main menu and user is left wondering what is going on.
#39643 - Send error message to all clients when server is about to to
die because of ruleset error
#40087 - Replaced #39643 solution with sending all error logs to all clients
#40170 (to be committed soon) - Limits #40087 to hack connections
only for security reasons
One solution is to restore #39643 solution: to send specific event
for ruleset errors in addition to error logging.
Long term solution should be better error handling server side so
that there's no need to exit().
