When you open a conversation with another user, click on the nickname button and select Change nickname, the client apparently tries to steal the nickname of the conversation partner.
Instead of the usual prompt where one can change their nickname, following message appears in the conversation:
===	The nickname “NickName” is already in use, use the /nick command to pick a new one.
OS: Windows XP → All
I can confirm this behaviour.
Ever confirmed: true

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:20.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/20.0 SeaMonkey/2.17a1 ID:20121219180903 c-c:68dcb9af22fb m-c:21195f52311c

me too, and also on L64 trunk.
Hardware: x86 → All
Version: unspecified → Trunk
P.S. When in a query with NickServ (or ChanServ or MemoServ etc.) the message is different but the phenomenon is the same:

NickServ Erroneous Nickname: Reserved for Services

meaning cZ tried (and failed) to change its nick to "NickServ".
This is caused by the patch for Bug 450309, specifically the lines in static.js that define rv.nickname to be rv.userName.
