This patch will fix irc.c to allow Naim to work properly with bitlbee. I don't think this would break anything else - it doesn't affect anything major.

I'm also an naim user and have verified this patch against 1.0 from freebsd ports. Without in naim + + bitlbee doesn't work well.ll

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

This is a bug in naim, not BitlBee. It is perfectly fine, according to the RFCs, to force a user to join a channel. 'JOIN' command to a channel you've already joined should simply be ignored by the IRC server (as happens on all 'real' IRC servers). Also, this patch does change the behaviour for IRC clients that do issue a erroneous extra JOIN but also notice the forced join.

Why is the extra code for CTCP necessary? Does BitlBee behave differently then other IRC servers for messages to yourself?
