This is a desired feature that makes stopnethack obsolete.  The thing
to do is turn off this feature by setting the option "0".  If you are
on a network that prevents nethacking, then you are already safe and
do not need the bot to save you.

Boy do I wish that was around in my early days on IRC :)  I still see
nick collisions on DALnet so I'm not sure what their plans are for
changing that.  Most of the time it's a user trying to recover from a
ghosted nick and not someone trying to force the disconnect.

There is also a timeout option in "wasop".  Check the value of
"wait-split" to find out how long the bot remembers a user who was an
Op before the split.  Anyone who recovers after this time out will
fail a "wasop" test.
