Summary: IRC dis/reconnect makes chat window inactive

Initial Comment:
If you have an open IRC chat window and are
disconnected - either manually or by the powers that be
- the channel will have to be rejoined, even if the
window remains open and you appear to be in a channel.

Procedure to reproduce bug:
1. Create an account for an IRC server.
2. Enter said IRC server and join a channel on it.
(chat window, not one of the IM windows).
3. a/ Disconnect from IRC server by deactivating it in
the accounts window.
b/ Pull the plug of your connection or something so
that you enter a disconnected state to the IRC server.
4. Try to type in IRC chat window: it will not send text.
5. Do not close IRC chat window.
7. Connect to the same IRC server again.
8. Try to type in IRC chat window: it will not send text.
9. Do not close IRC chat window, but rejoin channel.
10. Type in chat window for IRC: It will send text.

Adding comments from #1075064 (David Balazic - mr_stein):
WinGAIM 1.0.3 on Win2000pro-SP4

I am connected to an IRC server and have a chat window
open. During the night, I got a "disconnected" dialog
and in the morning I clicked "Reconnect".
Everything is fine, except the chat windows is now
"dead" ( The send and other buttons are grayed-out ).

Wouldn't it make sense to "revive" ( rejoin the IRC
channel ) the chat window on reconnect ?

It seems to me that this is more of of a feature request
than a bug.
