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.
