I haven't touched anything in mozbot.pl, and when the bot is addressed in channel with a colon after it's nick, the bot does not respond. Example: (DaiTengu|UA) devnull: test? (DaiTengu|UA) devnull; test? <devnull> DaiTengu|UA: Sorry, I've no idea what 'test' might be. bot console: 2003-04-21 10:14:27 UTC (8195) Heard: #unitedadmins <DaiTengu|UA> devnull: test? 2003-04-21 10:14:29 UTC (8195) Told: #unitedadmins <DaiTengu|UA> test? 2003-04-21 10:14:29 UTC (8195) Baffled: #unitedadmins <DaiTengu|UA> test? 2003-04-21 10:14:29 UTC (8195) ->#unitedadmins: DaiTengu|UA: Sorry, I've no idea what 'test' might be. I tried hacking at the source, but with my limited perl knowledge, it didn't fix the problem. everything is back to 'stock' install... this happens on both the 'stable' and 'development' branches from the CVS ... and, as far as I can tell, it also happens with the latest release. System: Pentium 550 384MB Ram Linux Mandrake 9.0 Kernel: 2.4.20 Perl 5.8.0 Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. start bot 2. address bot with a colon, eg: botname: hello! Actual Results: bot does not respond. Expected Results: mozbot should have responded.
this is worksforme. Given that the bot has ':' and ';' right next to each other in the hardcoded function that handles this, I don't see how it could ever happen as described. Very odd. Does it still happen?

I did finally discover the problem, some IRC Clients use an auto-completion method. instead of just using : they'll use ^B:^B or ^U:^U (for bold, and underline respectively) I had forgotten I submitted this bug when I finally discovered the issue :)
