konversation keeps getting owned

Yesterday I went to the workshop, where the Kubuntu-6.06 LTS box that runs my 
milling machine lives, and which usually has a copy of konversation running 
tuned to the #emc group on freenode, and found for the 4th time or maybe the 
5th, that another channel with a gibberishy name had been opened, but was 
showing no traffic on that channel since it had been opened.

And like the last few times, the only way to get rid of it was to stop 
konversation completely and restart it.

This whole system is behind a recent version of dd-wrt, whose firewall is 
pretty darned bulletproof, so I am at wits end to stop that other than 
swapping to a different IRC agent.

Is there another IRC client available that perhaps is a bit more secure than 


Cheers, Gene
