Sorry I don't know how to find the patch from the git url you gave :(

And about different clients on different OSes.
I've tried opera built-in irc client, emacs' erc/rcirc, and xchat when on windows, only xchat can keep me online. I also have tried the same irc clients except xchat on FreeBSD, all can't prevent me from disconnecting, so I assume that xchat has some unknown but useful ability. I'm sorry it's not so convenient to install xchat here.

And is it possible to compare weechat with other client (like xchat) on same OS (Linux) ? Windows is really different, this is not a relevant comparison..

I made some changes recently for socket errors, please look at http://git.savannah.gnu.org/gitweb/?p=weechat.git;a=commit;h=693246a61a24f31742fc3c78bd1a69463f9cc4e4
With devel version, what is error displayed when you are disconnected?

It mainly dues to the bad networking, but xchat on windows can prevent from it, xchat can make me always online without feeling afraid about getting disconnected and reconnecting frequently.

So I hope weechat can improve the irc protocol as xchat.
