That is really weird...

What's even more weird is that whatever is after minus is what server
said, so server belives you're connecting from

Are you running IRCd on your freebsd, or are you connecting through
some proxy?

Please change setting raw-log to 1 i.e.:
set raw-log 1

Then when you connect to bot write:
.console +rv

And tell us what do you see

Best regards,
