I don't know if this has been mentioned here before, so I'll mention it now, as I have no idea what I would search for. I wrote a small script to find each "mysql_connect" in my phpbb dir and replace it with "mysql_pconnect". The script took a little while to process, and I pinged out on a server that I made small by alt+clicking the status window. With auto-reconnect on, mirc reconnected me, my on connect script joined channels, but the icon was still the one from when i alt+clicked it. It seems pretty minor, but none-the-less, a bug.
