    what happend:
    i starded xchat 2.0.6 on my linux machine and, just for
    fun, tried to exploit it via mirc.
    if you are not familiar with that: mIRC 6.11 and ealier
    6.x crashed on a malformated dcc request. 6.12 fixed that.
    oh wonder! xchat closed!!!!
    * Quits: <xchat_linux_nick>(who@cares) (Client exited)
    (msg in my mirc)
    downgraded to 2.0.5 and tried again
    --- DCC RECV connect attempt to <mynick> failed
    (err=Invalid argument).
    this was reproduced on a FreeBSD machine with xchat 2.0.6
