I'm connected to three different networks. For two Networks me is using the global nickname settings. For the third network i have used individual settings in the network-options.
If i get disconnected from all three networks at the same time (happens when my ISP disconnects my connection every 24h automatically) my nickname will be changed.
This is normal since the old nick is still there as a "ghost". By default XChat is using the next nickname from the list of three specified in either the global settings or, if specified, form the individual settings for each network.
If i disconnect multiple times without changing my nick manually it happens that the third network with the individual nicknames specified is using one of the global nicknames, even if two of the others nicks specified in the network settings could be used (the third one my be still there as a ghost).
If i scroll back in the irc-window i can see that:
--- nick2/local already in use. Retrying with nick2/local..
--- nick2/local already in use. Retrying with nick3/global..
That means i was connected with the 2nd nick from the local network nickname settings. After i got disconnected xchat tried to connected with using the 2nd nick again. Since that was in use it tried to connect with the 3rd nickname from the global settings...
