This is part of idle log obtained on entering "/part #cv iiii jjjj kkkk llll" on empathy:
** (telepathy-idle:32209): DEBUG: iface_send_impl: sent "PART #cv iiii jjjj llll kkkkk
" to IOChannel 0x81c1750
** (telepathy-idle:32209): DEBUG: _parse_message: parsing ":email@example.com PART #cv :"iiii""
** (telepathy-idle:32209): DEBUG: _parse_and_forward_one: message code 9
Seems idle is mis parsing the optional message in PART command.
This branch prepends a colon to the optional message portion of the IRC PART command.
Ref: Section 2.3.1 and 3.2.2 of IRC RFC: http://www.irchelp.org/irchelp/rfc/rfc2812.txt
Corrected branch: http://gitorious.org/glassrose-gnome/telepathy-idle/commits/fix-missing-colon-in-PART-command-construction
In this branch, construction of PART command sent over IO channel is corrected.
This patch looks good! I shall commit it (just as soon as I've fixed up my git checkouts to point to freedesktop.org).
Committed: <http://cgit.freedesktop.org/telepathy/telepathy-idle/commit/?id=248444a>. I also added a test case, and fixed a similar bug when kicking people.
