Big stability improvements

Maybe you have noticed that our server was unstable on a few days in December 2020. For an unknown reason a potential dead lock, hidden in the Wurm Unlimited vanilla core, was triggered more often than it ever was triggered before, this could be related to some players having a bad connection or some other unidentified cause. Anyways, we could identify the deadlock bug along with some other issues. The main reasons for the bad stability were identified successfully and fixed, there has also been a problem with our network card driver which was unstable when it operated close to speeds of 1 Gbit/s (1000 Mbit/s) to or from the internet, just a small side effect when you are operating with such professional hardware. We worked hard over the Christmas holidays and had everything working out and stabilized with the begin of January 2021.

While it was hard to have a Wurm Unlimited server stable for 7 days with the big amount of players we have on our server before the improvements, it is now possible to have all our servers up and running for almost 28 days straight without any major issue or bigger lag spikes.
