Spawning issue at beginning of game

At the beginning of a game, when loading into a server early, I have experienced two issues:

  1. Occasionally, I will load into a server prior to the countdown to begin the match (as with the Insurgency 1, the player has free movement and can goof around). However, if I die immediately prior to the match countdown starting (not enough time to respawn), I am left dead at the beginning of the round. I do respawn after a point is taken. I have not experienced this issue where I die but respawn before the countdown starts.

  2. Related to (1), I have noticed that incendiary grenades that I throw in the pre-match period seem to persist during the countdown timer at the beginning of the match. I am unsure of whether the fire damages teammates while they are unable to move.

As to (2), the incendiary animation continues to run, but it does not damage after the round starts.
