The solution I implemented is to ignore everything after first space in user modes (so it's not specific to flag "+s").
I'm not sure if some servers are sending modes with this format for example: "+i +w", in which case the fix will ignore the "+w".
I think all servers are sending "+iw", which is working fine.
Please let me know if the fix is causing troubles with some servers.

The +s usermode, supported by various ircd's, accepts an argument consisting of a mode-like "snomask" (server notice mask), which allows the user to receive various server notices. Under some conditions, InspIRCd servers send this argument back to the user, in this form:

:grawity!grawity@panther.nathan7.eu MODE grawity +s +cCqQ

When WeeChat receives this line, it misinterprets the +cCqQ argument as actual user modes, and displays it in the "input" bar as "grawity(woscCqQ)" instead of the correct "grawity(wos)".

A test server is available at irc://sol.nullroute.eu.org:6669 – use "/oper test test" to obtain the mode.
