Subject: POE::Component::IRC::Plugin::AutoJoin - Rejoin on kick/ban broken for passworded channels on ircu/snircd servers

Due to ircu/snircd servers hiding channel passwords from non-opped users (they return '*' instead of the channel password in the 3rd item of numeric 324's reply string), the S_Join server method is overwriting the channel password stored in the Channels hash with an invalid password ('*'). This results in the plugin failing to rejoin a passworded channel after being kicked or kick-banned. The attached patch (against latest in the git repo) introduces a new argument ( Store_key_on_join ) for the plugin's new method which dictates whether the S_Join server method stores a channel's password to the Channels hash. By default, it is enabled and must be disabled for use on ircu/snircd servers. Regards, Jase Thew.

Thanks for the bug report. The fact that it's overriding the password at all is actually a bug. It does so at join time, when $irc->channel_key($chan) will be empty on all servers, not just ircu and its derivatives. Anyway, I'm cooking up a solution to this which won't require a special key to new() for ircu (the plugin will just check the server version and Do The Right Thing). Furthermore, it will also record the password for any password-protected channels you join later.
