Split long lines doesn't work on groupchat

BitlBee splits lines longer than the max size supported by IRC. This doesn't seem to work on Jabber's groupchats and long lines end up you being cut (instead of split into multiple lines).

I must add that this only happens when using groupchats. If I'm private messaging someone, long lines are split correctly.

Oh, interesting! Could you try enabling the xmlconsole and posting some relevant messages that don't get split correctly? (they will appear split in the xmlconsole, which will be a bit hard to read...). Also you might want to remove any jabber addresses from the output.

Hi dx,

Here you go:

As you can see, the message was truncated at around ~430 characters and the rest of the message isn't shown in the groupchat.

Although in the example I've given you it doesn't happen, I've seen it truncate in the middle of a word. So I'm guessing this function irc_splitlines isn't being called somewhere? I'm not familiar with the codebase.

Seems like it was a trivial patch. I haven't tested it because lazy. Tell me if it works.
