I'm pretty sure that means that you have some anti-collision script installed.
What the script does is it randomly changes nicknames for a certain ammount of
time if it sees anyone get killed for nick collisions.
Since undernet uses TS, you do not need this script. A couple older networks
have issues with nick collisions, but undernet is not one of them.
