21:32:48    fabioth| hey does someone know whay im getting spammed by myself
                     when connected to the bitlbee server..
21:32:56    fabioth| *why
21:33:22         dy| skizo
21:33:38    fabioth| i get messages like this:
21:33:44    fabioth| ® 555605033
21:37:22         dy| 555-bit-bee
21:38:13    fabioth| ?
21:42:11     wilmer| fabioth: ah, someone reported this before
21:42:13     wilmer| uhm
21:42:22     wilmer| you use mirc and nonamescript?
21:42:33     wilmer| ah, ctcp-version confirms :-)
21:42:35    fabioth| jep
21:42:46     wilmer| it's nonamescript sending these to yourself
21:42:48     wilmer| to measure the lag
21:42:53    fabioth| lol
21:43:00     wilmer| and until recently bitlbee ignored self-msgs
21:43:08     wilmer| so that's why you probably didn't notice this before

Let's try to get this fixed before 1.0. Disabling the lag-meter of nss indeed gets rid of this, but of course it shouldn't happen in the first place. Maybe BitlBee strips something from the message so nns doesn't recognize it anymore.

I tracked it down together with fabioth. It turns out those messages are in fact NOTICEs, while BitlBee just sent back everything as a PRIVMSG. Not very nice indeed, so it's fixed now. Thanks a lot to fabioth for the quick assistance in tracking this down!

See [36].
