#60 Using multiple clients shows sent text only on one client

    I guess the commit message for r1579 is just wrong, ignore that one.

    Channel messages from one of the connected clients are forwarded to the other ones for ages already. This works fine here.

    Queries can't be forwarded. The only way to do this would be to inject a fake query message from the guy you are talking to and this would be quite ugly. Sorry, but this is a protocol limitation (I guess IRC doesnt like people who talk to themselves ;)

    So, which one of the above two option is this refering to? Or is this talking about something completely different? More details please.

    The problem I encountered was, that if I'm connected twice to the same account on the bnc, I for example, have running znc permanently connected on a shell to a bitlbee-Server, if I connect to that account with mibbit eg. because I dont have shell access at a given place but want to reach my IM-Accounts, znc doesn't show messages on both of the connected clients. After disconnecting from the mobile irc client i have only the received messages on the primary client.

    I would appreciate it, if the messages sent from me to other users would be shown on all connected clients.
    Hope I could make this clearer..

    Like psychon said, it's impossible to fix for queries/private messages, neither the IRC protocol nor any IRC client support that. Closing.
