Reproducible: Didn't try.

I just had the following:

    [INFO] Disconnecting from IRC. Click close again to exit now.
    [INFO] Disconnecting from IRC. Click close again to exit now.
   [ERROR] Internal error dispatching command "quit".
   [ERROR] Not connected.

Expected result:
Maybe I shouldn't have typed /q twice, but ChatZilla should have quit anyway.

Additional info:
The system was *extremely* sluggish due to heavy RAM & swap use by a different process. How sluggish? There was at times a noticeable delay between hitting CapsLock or NumLock and seeing the light go on or off. Don't ask how long between hitting the key for a printable character and seeing it appear onscreen.
P.S. CapsLock/NumLock delay length: a few tenths of a second. It's a USB keyboard but not wireless.

Had it again today with only one /q

ChatZilla had been disconnected for hours while I was away because it was waiting on a "wrong certificate" dialog. (The certificate was for * and, after a ping timeout, it was trying to connect to which uses the same servers). I finally accepted the certificate but cZ did not reconnect. I typed /reconnect-all but AFAICT ChatZilla did not react. Typing /quit gave the same error as in comment #0 without the [INFO] message.

The only way (that I have found) to reconnect ChatZilla consists of closing it, not by /quit but by clicking the [X] button at top-right of its window, then starting it afresh. Of course any (channel etc.) history is lost unless it was being logged, and in the latter case it can be read with a text editor or pager but AFAIK not with ChatZilla itself.

This occurrence of the bug is for cZ in SeaMonkey 2.27a1 (Toolkit 30.0a1) while comment #0 was in Firefox 17 ESR. Same cZ version AFAIK. Not sure if it's worth setting tracking flags for the browser; there are none available in this bug for ChatZilla itself.

I've also had similar errors with the /reconnect and /reconnect-all commands but I forgot to mention them in this bug, and now the details of how they happened are forgotten.
