I don't much care about the 'issue' at hand here, the extraneous incorrect
linkifying has never particularly annoyed me, but the fact that pidgin
does give me the hostmask information at part time that it did at join
time has bothered me for a while (but clearly never enough to bring up or
do anything about). So for whatever it is worth I would advocate showing
as much relevant information in both join and part messages and then
working from that place to figure out how to handle this.
