#473 closed defect (duplicate)

Japanese names do not work correctly in Jabber chatroom

In a jabber chatroom (I read something about this maybe having to do with being a public room? Anyway) I frequent, there are many people with names in Japanese character. They show up as "_=chatroomname@server", instead of "日本語=chatroomname@server" as they should. This wouldn't be a problem if there were one user; then I could just "rename _ name", but if I do that, everyone ELSE with a name in ひらがな will show up as that name as well.

This seems to be the same issue like #566.

My fear is that IRC clients can't deal with non-ASCII characters in nicknames and/or hostmasks. I'm told this isn't always the case, so I'll try to find a good solution here.
