Eggdev: [PATCH] CVE-2007-2807: stack-based buffer overflow

This patch seems to break ctcp functionality in the two bots i've
tried it on, Debian and FreeBSD respectively.  They dont seem to see
the CTCP commands anymore, just showing that a user did a "CTCP :"
instead of a "CTCP TIME:" or any other CTCP.

Kind regards too,
