errors in IRC-client with numeric nicks

some clients like mIRC can't really handle numeric-only and cause failures (no query possible, messages go to status window instead of personal window, even software crash) like they're happening in ICQ buddies. Also, I know no IRC server that allows numeric nicknames.

Numeric nick names should have at least one alpha-numeric character.

Good point. I thought of this too but never spent too much time on fixing it because I wasn't aware of any client actually having problems with it.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Okay, fixed. :-) Thanks for reporting this, I didn't expect clients to actually break on those nicknames. I changed it to insert an underscore at the beginning of the nickname. That seems to be legal, at least the OFTC IRC server and Irssi accept it.

If mIRC still doesn't like it, please reopen this bug.
