Summary: nick does not change in the user list 

Initial Comment:
I will try to explain how to reproduce this.

Log in into a IRC channel and enter a room say #room.
Say with your nickname "foo"

now your name appear in the userlist in the #room

now change your nick using /nick foo_bar on message window

Though the nick is changed the userlist still shows
your old nickname.

It use to work ok in 1.5

I use this usually to show my current status. I change
my nickname so that users can see what I am doing.

On that note it will be nice to have something like
that in gaim where a status is displayed below the
nickname. In that case we dont have to keep changing
the nick or away messages to reflect the status

yes I had an alias set. When I removed the alias it worked as expected.

On Linux, in 2.0.0 beta 5, with *no alias set*, you still have this
problem?  (I don't think you do.)

Hmmm OK if the behavior is changed thats fine. However the 1.5 behaviour
still works on windows for 2.0.0 beta5 but on linux it shows the problem.
So I would expect it to work same way on both platforms.

The behavior you describe does work in 2.0 Beta 5.

I'm not sure why it works different in 1.5.x.

Thanks for your help.

Then 1.5.x was broken.  Just unset the alias, and you should see the
behavior you want.

As was stated in the original post, it didn't work this way in 1.5.0.  If
I changed my Nick, my name changed in the Users list and on screen.

I liked the way it worked in 1.5.0 for many of the reasons stated in the
original post.  In my opinion it should work that way again.

You probably have an alias set for your IRC account.  If this is the case,
Gaim will *always* show your local nickname as that alias, regardless of
what your server nick is.

I am also seeing this behavior in Gaim v2.0 Beta 5
