Changing Maxplayers in srcds with rcon, Bug?

Yesterday I discovered that I can change the maxplayers of a server with rcon.

I start the server in linux with
screen -A -m -d -S srcds_30001public ./srcds_run -console -game cstrike -ip -port 30001 -tickrate 66 +fps_max 200 +map de_dust2 +maxplayers 24

Then with HLSW I connect with rcon to the server and send 'rcon disconnect' and the servers unloads any map and doesn't do ping anymore, but you can still use rcon. I type 'rcon maxplayers 32' and 'rcon map de_dust2' and now my servers does ping and shows maxplayers as 32

Is this a bug? or someones knows how to lock de maxplayers cvar?


PD: bad english xD
The issue what that you still had rcon even though you stoped the logs.
I don't see why you would need to lock the cvar, only people with rcon would be able to change the cvar anyways.

For a GSP is a problem.. hmm still searching the fix..
