You should be able to register anyway, the password and emails are just hidden on screen, but are sent with the command.

You can customize or delete the "rmodifier", which is used to hide password, see /help rmodifier and /rmodifier (the default rmodifier is called "command_auth").

For me since you can customize behaviour it's not really a bug. Maybe default value of rmodifier can be improved, I'll check that.

In version 0.4.0 you can register new nick (irc.freenode) name like this:

/msg NickServ REGISTER password -unavailable-

But in new 0.4.1 version, when you type email after password, your email and space symbol after pass displays like ***; for example:

/msg NickServ REGISTER *******************************

(i install weechat-0.4.1 on Gentoo Linux from source (ebuild))

thanks. (sorry for English)
