AOL added two new bots called "MovieFone" and "ShoppingBuddy". bitlbee reports:

15:28 <@root> serv_got_update() for unknown TOC handle MovieFone:
15:28 <@root> loggedin = 1, type = 34
15:28 <@root> serv_got_update() for unknown TOC handle ShoppingBuddy:
15:28 <@root> loggedin = 1, type = 34

Would be nice to ignore unknown handles without having to add them as buddies and then set /ignore <nick>.

Since I updated bitlbee to version .99 (I had .91), I was able to do:

block $conn $handle

and from that, I haven't see the AOL bots.

I think this can be closed since the issue seems to be resolved.

Hmm, strange, you said that it didn't work before. Maybe you forgot to pass the connection argument? At least that would explain it, because I don't remember anything changed between 0.91 and 0.99 that could cause this difference. Even though there's about a year and half in between those releases. :-)
