Yeah, but it's not "the" client. The problem are nearly all (different)
clients of my users (including mine). Maybe I could change the daemon to
just ignore messages that are too long. Am I right that the trouble is
caused by the
Conn_Close( Idx, NULL, "Request too long", TRUE );
in conn.c line 1255? Instead of closing the connection one could copy only
the first 511 bytes.

BTW: The link http://download.berlios.de/ngircd/ngircd-0.8.3.tar.gz under
http://arthur.ath.cx/~alex/ngircd/#source is dead.
