Confirmed... 6.21, WinXP SP2
It also occurs when you're pasting large ammounts of text.

Well, it always did that since I use mIRC and I don't consider this as a bug...

Why wouldn't it be a bug?

It sends lines to the server when it's not meant to.

I guess it depends on whether it was intentional for some reason or not. Whether intentional or not, I don't think it should send it if you hold a key down for a long period of time. It may or may not be a bug based on what Khaled meant to happen, but it should be prevented regardless.

When the Windows single-line editbox becomes full it treats that as if a return key has been pressed and clears the editbox. Some versions ago I placed a limit on the number of characters that could be typed into the editbox to prevent the above problem. However the limit also prevented users from pasting multiple lines into a single-line editbox, eg. in the case where they wanted to send several separate lines into a channel or query window. So the limitation was removed to permit this.
