     This is a bug; I've fixed it for the next release, thanks for the
report.  As regards your other message, not setting the last-used time for
+a/+q users is designed behavior (see section 3-2-1 of the manual: "`used'
means that a user with auto-op privileges ... has entered the channel"), as
well as unnecessary in typical channel settings (where +a users are a
subset of +o users), but if you have any better suggestions on how to
determine when a channel is being used by proper users as opposed to (for
example) spammers or people just entering to see if the channel is
available, I'm willing to listen.
