Summary0002677: Serverside getResourceConfig returns an invalid xmlnode pointer for stopped resources

Summary is self explanatory. Major as trying to run xml functions on this xmlnode can crash the server.

We can't test if the clientside version has the same problem, because you can't get a valid resource pointer for a stopped resource clientside.

Steps To Reproduce

/start runcode
/run getResourceConfig(getResourceFromName "edftest", "edftest.edf")

This will show the results of running tostring() on the returned xmlnode:
userdata: 00000000

TagsNo tags attached.

Is this only on resources that have been started then stopped?

No, only on resources which haven't been started.

Running it on resources that have been started and stopped seems to return a valid pointer.

Might've fixed it now. It returns false if the resource isn't started now.

I think we want server side configs to be accessible when resources are stopped... Initially they were disabled by default, but people needed access to them when they're stopped for the editor...

i think its more sensible that we have special ACL functions to start resources with limits. I'll speak to you about it sometime

the reason these were disabled was the amount of memory they were using as soon as the server started running, the server was using say 8mb in debug mode without them then maybe 25mb (when we didn't have half the resource we have now) with them

Then we should do what i just mentioned in irc: special ACL access to start resources with certain limits.

This means you can start a resource, but strip its script or map functionality so it wont interfere with the editor.
