Details:

Currently, when a user detaches from a player and then a different user
attaches to it, and the game ends within TURNS_NEEDED_TO_RANK turns, the
former player's username is filled into the ranklog file. This is a bad
behaviour which has recently been lamented on chat, potentially causing
incoherent rank lists.

With this patch, after a user detaches (disconnects) from a player, its
ranked_username attribute is re-set to ANON_USER_NAME, allowing third-party
scripts to produce accurate ranks.

The public rank lists are available at
