The "Find Group Chat" feature requests a list from the server and might block forever, there should be some kind of timeout defined something like 30 seconds. Also the possible replies the IRC server sends should be more tested as depending on the IRCd they reply different codes!

For example:

2009-10-25 18:03:22,923 [ReadThread (irc.oftc.net:6667)] DEBUG SOCKET - received: ":solenoid.oftc.net 521 meebey_ :Bad list syntax, type /QUOTE HELP LIST"

I can't reproduce this issue anymore because of the workaround / fix seen in #263. I believe that's good enough for now as the search operation itself is cancelable and thus shouldn't be able to block forever.
