after closing a tab by klicking it with the middle mouse button (which probably was not the trigger), i could not /join any channel on all ircnets i was connected to. /reconnect did not help to fix the problem, only closing the server tab with all its channels and reopening it using quick connect from the menu.
after that i could use /join again on the new server connection but still not on the old server connections.
/quote join #channel worked nevertheless.

Reset the join queue when disconnecting and be verbose when the delay kicks in (closes: #311)

The /join command sometimes stopped completly working.
A netsplit -> excess flood -> rejoins -> excess flood could leave old and
unfinished join attempts in _ActiveChannelJoinList behind causing the join
queue to block forever.

Ok, I could track this issue down to this:

The NAMES reply event can be raised multiple times for big channels, leaving duplicate entries in _JoinChannelList behind. The next join attempt will then believe there are still on-going joins and thus never happens.
