Problem was in irc plugin (when option irc.look.hide_nickserv_pwd is on): now everything after "register" or "identify" will be hidden in commands to sent to nickserv (even username if specified).

No problem in logger, this plugin just writes what is displayed on screen, so the problem was the message displayed by irc plugin.

Logger censors username, but not password in logs where identify command is sent to NickServ at OFTC.
The logs contain "MSG(NickServ): identify password ****" in which **** is username.

This probably happens, because WeeChat probably expects the server to use syntax "/msg nickserv identify username password", but OFTC uses syntax "/msg nickserv identify password username".
