I was able to determine by using the RAW log that Weechat was sending too many chars when responding to SASL authentication. The offending line is 171 of irc-procotol.c and reads:

answer = strdup ("++");

when it should read:

answer = strdup ("+");

I have submitted a patch to correct the issue.

When using SASL EXTERNAL, the client should authenticate via the CertFP. On Charybdis/Atheme networks, however, this fails.

I am using a valid Cert. Once the SASL authentication fails and I make the connection, NickServ recognizes the CertFP and authenticates me.

I have absolutely no idea why this isn't working. I'll dig around and try to figure it out.
