IIRC MasterPasseli was the initial player-slot owner. They Joki77 joined for him and was a good match with about equal strength. Then that smurf successfully joined for him after the first two votes at game start did fail.

n2s, gadget fails to detect joinas because joined player believes they were always present.

It's probably not possible to fix this cleanly without an engine change. Players who joinas edit history and see themselves as always having been present; consequently they are unable to tell that they are joining late. Likely needs an extra callin from the engine.
