Connecting to an IRCd using an empty realname field might lead to an error as the server enforces a non-empty field. Here is an transcript of such case:
00:03 -!- Verbinde zu irc.oftc.net Port 6667...
00:04 -!- Verbindung zu irc.oftc.net ist hergestellt

More details from the reporter:
23:56:43 <nh2> meebey: smuxi can't connect to IRC servers if the real name is empty
23:56:52 <nh2> http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2812#section-3.1.3 is not clear about that 
23:58:05 <nh2> we get a irc 461 error from most networks in this case, so I think the real name should not be empty
23:58:36 <nh2> meebey: something like this works for me: http://gitorious.org/~nh2/smuxi/nh2s-smuxi/commit/c866f622ae3f3a9257f7b0f10a66d57dd1649447
