Milestone: Component: pidgin (gtk)
Version: 2.10.11 Keywords:


Using 2.10.10-1~deb7u1 on Debian Stable 7.7 and if my saved password has a ' in it, it gets changed to ' and auto-login for the account doesn't work. This is on an IRC account as well. Will provide any information I can to help.

We determined that this is actually confusion about what the server password does for IRC accounts.

Freenode makes it confusing because it will (mis)use the password for identification - OFTC doesn't, hence the confusion.
