Summary0005462: Successful ident replies still leads to idents being prefixed with an ~
DescriptionWith the option set::options::identd-check enabled, users connecting to the network and successfully replying to identd checks still have their ident prefixed by an ~.

I've tested it with Quassel, TheLounge and IRCCloud.
Steps To Reproduce- Enable set::options::identd-check on your server and rehash
- Connect a user from a machine that replies to identd requests
- After successful reply and after complete connection the ident is still prefixed by an ~

Thanks for the report, I'll try to reproduce here on my end (sounds like that will be no problem) and fix the issue. The ident code was rewritten in U5 so it's possible that there are some issues in it... especially since it is not tested via the automated test framework.

    Fix ident check not working with some (most?) clients. Reported by
    The_Myth in
    Now the code is much more generic/liberal. And more ugly.
