I tried again and that's what I did:
I created a new network without any name given including one server
(irc.quakenet.org:6667), the network was named "New Network" (standard).
Login proceeds without problems but now I see that I want to rename the
network name to QuakeNet (I tried some other names -> exchangeable). Rename
the network, change your IRC account settings to use the new network name
(made automatically actually).
Problem in two different versions:
1. Re-login directly after changing name and logout from IRC network does
absolutely nothing. The IRC icon blinks but stops after a few seconds without
any error notice.
2. After restarting kopete, error message pops up:
"The network associated with this account, New Network, no longer exists.
Please ensure that the account has a valid network. The account will not be
enabled until you do so."
You can check the preferences again to change the network name but it doesn't
help. Manually editing kopeterc or just creating a new IRC account solves the
problem which is IMHO no clean solution.
I have reproduced the bug three times now, one time restarting kopete beforce
changing the network name and the other time without restarting. Both lead to
the same result.
Politics and the fate of mankind are formed by men without ideals and without
greatness. Those who have greatness within them do not go in for politics.
