Initially reported at https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xchat/+bug/88988

I have a large amount of channels I wish to autojoin (about 25) and put this into xchat>network list, select network and edit.

The list is then saved to ~/.xchat2/servlist_.conf correctly.

However on closing then re-opening xchat the list is truncated by xchat in the file, it doesn't just read it and only join the first 300 chars, it alters the file.

An easy workaround in packaging is to change the definition of CHANLEN in src/common/xchat.h

However this just means the problem isn't seen for longer.

Is there a solution to get rid of this length altogether?

(experienced on 2.8.0)

    I plan to make this string longer for the next version.

    Fixed in 2.8.6, and even better in 2.8.8
