I add a nickname containing square brackets to my Network DCC auto-accept list.
The nickname is similar to '[Text]MoreText'.
When I add the nickname from preferences, it does NOT work.
Adding it with the /dcc-accept-list-add command DOES work.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Chatzilla preferences.
2. Click on a Network. Click on the DCC tab. Click ADD button
3. Type a nickname containing square brackets.
4. Click OK. Click Apply. Click Ok.
5. The nickname sends you a file.
Actual Results:  
[DCC]	Got DCC File Transfer offer .... [Accept] [Decline].

Expected Results:  
[DCC]	Auto-accepting DCC File Transfer offer ...... in 10 seconds [Accept] [Decline].

I was requesting the files from a dcc bot using the following syntax:
/msg [nickname] xdcc send #[packnum]
