The problem is most likely that the person sent you a character that doesn't exist in iso8859-2 (which is, I guess, the charset you're using). Iconv then usually gives up on the whole string, so nothing gets converted.

The best solution is probably to make your IRC client use UTF-8, there shouldn't be conversion issues then.

I'll close this one, because this is actually a limitation in your charset, nothing BitlBee can do about that (except that it could handle these things differently, but I think there's no way to make iconv ignore unknown chars)...
