-> It was found some time ago that few of IRCnet's ircd's
-> with +topic module can be rebooted by simply
-> doing /quote TOPIC !etC (or-whatever !channel)
-> This has been already mass-abused by 'EvIL MiRkhAx0rZ'
-> and servers have been patched now... so time for it to go public since
-> there is virtually no more threat left
There were some bugs in ircd and/or patches which caused this.
The new version of topic patch is available e.g. on
http://nextra.irc.sk/download/ and it's not affected.

Your mouse has moved. Windows NT must be now restarted for changes
to take effect. Reboot ? (Y/N)
