drop, error: 4

I wanted to drop my account on and tried the drop-command. With correct password the resulting output is "Error: `4'". After that identify with the old password outputs that the username isn't registered, and register (with a new password) outputs that username IS registered.

However, when reconnecting to the bitlbee server, the new password, used with register, is the valid one.

Hrmm. I can't reproduce it. :-( What's your nickname? Maybe something odd's going on with your account files.

(Strange, since I remember seeing this error myself a few months ago...)

Ah, I'm guessing it's "beo"? I'm trying to reach the server maintainer now. Unfortunately I don't run myself. :-(

Don't have enough info to reproduce this...

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Finally, TigerTails in #bitlbee had this problem and I soon realized the problem was that his nickname wasn't all lowercase. Turns out xml_remove didn't convert the nickname to lowercase before trying to remove its file, while the rest of storage_xml does do this conversion every time.

Fixed in changeset:devel,403.

Were you also logging in as Zibri or something like that? If not, please reopen this bug.
