Comment(by Simon-v):

 I began experiencing this (or a similar) bug in Pidgin 2.9.0 on Ubuntu

 The problem manifested itself after the network connection was momentarily
 dropped and the account reconnected. At this point using the /nick command
 did not produce any feedback and Pidgin did not associate the nick with
 myself; nevertheless, messages sent by me were still displayed as if
 coming from the new nick. Moreover, the nicks of people who left the
 channel did not clear from the user list, leading to duplicate and bogus
 nicks (at one point there were 10 of the same nick on the channel, 12 of
 another and 5 of a third one, all of which tend to timeout and reconnect
 often). Closing and reopening the chat window fixed the issue.

 Disabling Join/Part Hiding, IRC Helper and Irssi Features plugins did not
 help, so this is probably not plugin-related.

 Enabled plugins:
 Bot Sentry (disabled for the IRC account)
 Coin Flip
 Enhanced History
 IRC Helper
 Irssi Features
 Join/Part Hiding
 Last Seen
 Libnotify Popups
 Message Notifications
 Message Timestamp Formats
 Psychic Mode
 Voice/Video Settings
 XMPP Priority
 XMPP Service Discovery

 Consider reopening this as a potential regression.
