/leave should close the view even if channel not connected


(Other Applications :: ChatZilla, defect)

When I try to join a channel and the join is refused I can't /leave that
channel.  If I /hide the channel and then attempt to /join another channel, the
hidden window opens and the new successfully joined channel is hidden.  The new
channel seems to be open but the window is showing the information from the
"un-joined" channel.  It's simple to duplicate.
There's two problems here.  The first is that I broke /hide with the conversion
to <deck>.  The second is that /leave should probably close the view even if the
channel hasn't been connected to. (Or possibly a /close command for that)

It appears that Ctrl+X does what is expected--it closes the tab. The right click
context menu that says "Leave '#channel'  Ctrl+X" doesn't behave correctly. I'd
expect /leave and the context menu to both close the channel tab even if it
isn't joined.

Got hit by this one as well. Tried to join an +i channel which was refused.
Subsequently there was no way to close the channel window. Leave would simply
state that I hadn't joined. Take this spam as a vote for this bug :-)
You can use /hide or /delete to make the view go away.  Or using the menus,
View->Close View.
