* Fixed a rare crash related to loosing the last away reason when reconnecting via BNC (a bug that appeared in 2.8.5b and c only).
* Fixed a possible Channel List crash if you searched many times while the download was still going.
* Using /part on a channel that contains a quotation mark now works.
* The balloon alert settings are now visible again after being accidently hidden in the last couple releases.
