Merged with a small change: check that pos is not NULL in the condition, so that it works with malformed messages where there is nothing after nick/host.

Both RFC1459 and RFC2812 allow the prefix in an IRC message to only contain nick and host, such as ":nick@host PRIVMSG #weechat :foo". irc_message_parse will in this case use "nick@host" as nick instead of just "nick".

Reference (from RFC2812):

message    =  [ ":" prefix SPACE ] command [ params ] crlf
prefix     =  servername / ( nickname [ [ "!" user ] "@" host ] )

See the attached patch for my proposed fix. Alternatively, feel free to merge the parse-privmsg branch from my repository at https://github.com/tribut/weechat.git
