Bug Description

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/ubuntu/lernid-", line 181, in _send_text
    self._append_to_buffer(_('IRC commands are not yet supported.'))
  File "/home/ubuntu/lernid-", line 83, in _append_to_buffer
    elif self._on_faculty(sender):
  File "/home/ubuntu/lernid-", line 219, in on_faculty
    return self._current_session and name.lower() in \
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'lower'

The solution is probably to look for a sender of None on or about line 83 in lernid/widgets/ and to avoid the faculty check.

are we supposed to serve those commands, or ignore them?

They should be ignored.

The code tries to append an error message to the chatroom stream, and fails because the error message is appended without specifying a sender, which defaults to none. There's code above the line above that handles the sender==None case, but it isn't handled here, so there is a problem. The code in this function should probably be reviewed for any other sender==None cases.
