Summary: Chatlog unavailable after changing IRC username

Initial Comment:
today I saw that the chatlog is empty after I changed
my username for an IRC account. If I change the name
back to the old one it is visible again.

It would be cool if the chatlog would be independent
from the IRC name.

This behavior was observed with Gaim 1.5.0 on GNU/Linux

I'm not sure how to best handle this one. Having the chat 
logs be truly independent of the account information is 
confusing when one tries to look at the filesystem. A 
better approach might be to rename the chat log folder upon 
nickname change, but that will cause all sorts of weirdness 
if you synchronize multiple .gaim directories. A SQL logger 
could handle this intelligently, so if we ever get one of 
those written.... ;) 
I'm just going to leave this open as a feature request 
until someone can think of a good way to do this. 
Perhaps our best option is to ask the user if they'd like 
to rename the log directory.
