Bug Description

Binary package hint: telepathy-idle

If a nick is already taken on the IRC server (unclean logout) telepathy-idle just fails instead of adding on additional characters to allow for login.

I'm wondering if this shouldn't instead be handled by the client (e.g. empathy). Because different clients might have different approaches to the problem. Also, if we did automatic nick-changing in the connection manager, we'd need to have some way to communicate back up to the client that "the nick you gave us didn't work, so I used this one instead". That seems like more trouble than just having the client take responsibility for automatically retrying with a modified nick.
