The only somewhat annoying thing I can think of in Konversation is that 
the 'Connect to server' dialog is actually part of the Settings dialog. 
They bypassed this by adding a shortcut which directly opens the 
Settings at the right page, but it's still clumsy. Aside of that, I've 
been happily using it instead of ksirc for more than a year now. The 
main reason for switching that I was looking for a replacement for ksirc 
in the first place, which says a bit about its perceived quality. 
Konversation proved to be far from ideal, but adequate.
