This might be because I've got 15 channels open on Freenode, but netsplits on Freenode are triggering a cycle of kick & rejoin on Freenode for me. Something in the netsplit causes Smuxi to trigger an excess-flood kick from Freenode, and then when Smuxi reconnects it again triggers an excess-flood kick. The cycle continues, sometimes for half an hour.

I attach a debug log of one such flood/reconnect/flood/... cycle. Warning! It's 20MB uncompressed.
