If you have mIRC colour codes inside something the URL munger things is a link,
the colour codes are completely ignored, and show up as the raw characters.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open ChatZilla. (you don't need to connect to any servers for this test)
2. Make sure the munger options (in File > Options > Munger) for "Color Codes"
and "URLs" are both on.
3. Enter "/echo " into ChatZilla, and past the contents of the file
http://www.warwickcompsoc.co.uk/~silver/test/mozilla/mIRC_color_test.txt after
it. Then press return.
4. Now turn off the "URLs" munger option, and repeat (press up addow, then
return to do it easily).

Actual Results:  
The first line has odd links that go nowhere, and visible mIRC colour code
characters (they'll probably show up as little squares).
the second line will not have any links and will be coloured differently

Expected Results:  
Both lines should be the same, at least colour-wise, though the first one may
have links.

As noted about, the simplest work-around it to turn of the URL munger, but this
is clearly not advisable for normal users.
