#15163 new defect

Can't receive messages to channels like &channel (as opposed to #channel)

Reported by: pazpaz Owned by: elb
Milestone: Component: IRC
Version: 2.10.4 Keywords:


/join &foo

If the server allows it then the channel will be joined and the channel's tab/window opens, and the nicks are displayed correctly in the user list, but receiving messages in the channel doesn't work. I get the following error in Pidgin's debug console when another client sends a message to the channel:

"Got a PRIVMSG on &foo, which does not exist"

Nothing is seen in the channel.

Update: This only occurs when the 005 command from the server contains a CHANTYPES without the '&' (e.g. CHANTYPES=#&) or when PREFIX contains a '&'. I haven't narrowed it down yet.
