Eggheads: Eggdrop constantly getting ping timeout

Hello guys,

This problem has been solved thanks to guppy on undernet #eggdrop. It 
turned out that it is because the realname field is blank. However, 
there now seems to be another problem, and that is I get the same 
problem (I think) and I can't even telnet to it if I start it without 
-nt switches. If my X freezes (that happens a lot lately) I have to 
restart it using putty from another computer on the LAN and therefore 
the eggdrop is gone. Therefore I want to be able to start it without -nt 
switches, and still be able to telnet in and not get ping timeout (if 
that is the case). I hope I made myself clear enough. Any ideas?
