I noticed this while pm'ing someone. Whenever I was on that buffer and I was talking to someone, it would change the status bar as if I was on another buffer. The other user confirmed I wasn't /away.

As per FlashCode's advice, /buffer localvar shows that WeeChat thinks I'm away on all the Freenode buffers I'm on (since I used Freenode for this test). This is the problem.

To reproduce (using Freenode as an example):

1) Be already connected on Freenode
2) Go on /away with any reason
3) /disconnect
4) /away -all *IMPORTANT*
5) /connect freenode
6) start pm'ing someone
7) wait for their reply. you should see the location bar light up even though you're not away.
