#32 Buffer resets with AutoCycle

Engine (43)

When AutoCycle enabled and the user is detatched, the channel's buffer resets when ZNC parts/joins to gain op status. Using SVN/crox.

    This is indeed a bug.

    AutoCycle calls CChan::Cycle() which sends a PART and a JOIN for that channel. When ZNC receives the PART reply it deletes that channel (IRCSock calls CUser::DelChan() which btw seems to leak memory). (Not tested, just assumed)

    So not only the channel's buffer but all settings get lost. I know no easy fix for this.

    We could add a m_bDeleted to CChannel which is set to true instead of deleting the channel. But when do we then delete the channel?

    This is half-fixed in latest release.
    AutoCycle was removed from core and moved into a module so we get less people accidentally using this.
    Thanks to kroimon. :)
