Just a note on this.  Two different proxy solutions I've used managed to
attempt joining a restricted channel before the nick auth step has
completed, thus bouncing me into the unregistered channel.  It takes a
moment or three to realize this is what happened, /and/ which channel I
didn't quite succeed in auto joining.  Is there any way to make this
auto message somewhat dynamic to tell what channel you tried to join and
got bounced from?  Also can we add some info about use of proxies and
the timing of channel joining?
