Nope.  The reason this happens is that Circle assumes that if your
connection state isn't equal to CON_PLAYING, you must be at the
menu, so it doesn't show you on the who list.

The source of this particular 'feature' can be found in
act.informative.c, in do_who(), where the following statement can
be found:

   if (d->connected)

Change it as necessary for your OLC setup.  Since you know C, I think
that's enough information to go on. 

"A rare instance of a solid period, end of story, case-closed moment
 took place in the first presidential debate when Bob Dole croaked his
 URL to a bemused electorate.  If the web were ever cool, if it could
 even lay claim to the illusion of cool, it died that moment.  At some
 moment between Dole's muttering of 'www' and his failure to include
 the dot between 'dolekemp' and 'org,' the web became conclusively,
 incontrovertibly lame."  -- Suck
