I set up a channel using
chat add <account> <firstname.lastname@example.org> in the &bitlbee control window, set
chan <room> set autojoin true and entered
/join #room in the &bitlbee window to join that groupchat. It then appears as a unique Irssi window in the status bar. This seems to work ok too, but with one exception:
Since I idle in the channels 24/7 my irssi has to cope with the every-night-24h-DSL-disconnection by the ISP. After it automatically reconnects, it does kind of rejoin that XMPP-groupchat, but the traffic of the groupchat does not go back to the unique irssi window, but keeps flooding &bitlbee with messages from
root telling me about a
Groupchat Message from unknown JID <jid>: <message> - which is the traffic of the groupchat. The unique groupchat window is gone after the reconnect, and I will again have to go
/join #room in &bitlbee to get it back.
Even worse, the window number is unused before I rejoin the groupchat, and if I get a query from any network, the window nests in that unused window spot, so I will first have to remove that query from the spot, and then move the rejoined groupchat to that window number.
I want my groupchat window to resume after the reconnect just like every other IRC channel too. How can I get this done? Any ideas?
/edit: now i set
chan <room> set autojoin false but it did not change anything. so could that be a bug in bitlbee, that ignores that autojoin true setting?
