#15757 closed defect (duplicate)

when nick registration fails, do not append a "1"

Reported by: thufirh Owned by: rekkanoryo

Conversation with NickServ? on Tue 17 Sep 2013 04:43:10 AM PDT: (04:43:10 AM) NickServ?: (notice) thufir?1 is not a registered nickname. ... (04:44:07 AM) NickServ?: (notice) thufir?1 is not a registered nickname.

However, that's not my nick at all:

thufir <at> dur:~$ thufir <at> dur:~$ head .purple/accounts.xml <?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8' ?>

<account version='1.0'>


<protocol>prpl-irc</protocol> <name>thufir? <at></name> <password>*&$##% <at> #$# <at> </password> <alias>thufir</alias> <statuses>

<status type='available' name='Available'

active='true'> thufir <at> dur:~$

pidgin is sending the wrong data to freenode nickserv, different from what's in the config files.

according to LotR on irc this is due to freenode being weird. When there's a connection problem then pidgin appends a 1 to the nick and tries again.

I differ, if I configure with a particular nick, that's the one I want to use...

seems an odd behaviour which I would like to disable. every x seconds pidgin should try to register the correct nick until success or x number of attempts...

the problem is that you cannot then join channels which require registration.
