If you join many channels at once (like during Smuxi startup) with something like this:
/join #chan1,#chan2,#chan3,#chan4

The chance is high will be kicked from the server because of a "excess flood". This happens because Smuxi has to sync all channel users and needs to send WHO requests for those which can trigger the said "excess flood".

Smuxi should only sync one channel at a time and delay the join while one channel is already syncing.
