Unable to interact with Mumble after mute / unmute quickly

It crashed, it is bugged, ...
Hello guys,

I hope your doing alright. I encounter a rather simple bug (or some kind of "anti-flood" feature). I often mute / unmute myself pretty quickly (like during 1 second).
After doing a quick mute-unmute, I'm not able to do anything. I can still hear my mates but nothing else.

Step to reproduce :
1. / Press as fast as possible the "mute" button (like 10 times).

After this, you can't do anything, no unmute, no change room.

If this is a feature, is there any way to turn it off ?

Hello JMax,

yes, that is a feature. It is server side rate limiting.
There is a cooldown period once you hit it. You should still be able to talk though, if you are unmuted.

See the messageburst and messagelimit config options of the server.

Hell yeah, you're right. I had an old mumble-server version and ended up doing a full upgrade from "jessie" to "buster".

I confirm that once I update the package mumble-server to 1.3.0~git20190125.440b173+dfsg-2 and change the value of messageburst and messagelimit to 5000, it solved everything.

I can finally spam the mute/unmute button. \o/

Btw I think it solve the following issue :

Thank you for the help kissaki, beers on me.

Just beware of that these limits are there for a reason; to prevent DoS flooding. :)

If you keep that in mind, changing them is fine of course.

Thank you! ;-)
