2 o) Fixed bug where unregistered clients were not able to complete registration
3 process with /quote PONG <ping_cookie> in case the client was assigned a

5 being enabled.

7 used by channel bans/excepts/invites.
8 o) Fixed archaic bug where bursting servers with missconfigured NICKLEN were

11 now automatically detect an already installed version of the PCRE library.
