I have encountered this bug at irc://ircnet/#chojnów - chatzilla doesn't display
nicknames in any channel containing ó in the name; other national  characters
make no difference.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. connect to some ircnet server 
2. /join #chojnów. If you can't enter ó on your keyboard you can go to #chojnow
and cut&paste the name from the topic - it is always there.

Actual Results:  The nickname list isn't showed.

Expected Results:  Chatzilla shall show them.
Confirmed using 2002072404 - Win2k SP2

Don't see any nicks in the list, but nick-completion works.
Ever confirmed: true

I think nsScriptableUnicodeConverter::ConvertFromUnicode() can't handle
8 bit characters correctly.

If channel name is in iso-2022-jp(7 bit), nicknames are displayed.

Does anyone know where this is falling over? I can do /names for the channel
fine, even though it's not showing the user list.

This fixes the problem by escaping the name of the channel before passing it to
rdf.GetResource().  escape() may not be the best thing to use, but it works,
and should help somebody write a 'proper' fix - at least it shows where the
problem lies.
