It looks like this means your SOCKS proxy isn't configured to support 
IRC. You might see if it can be made to do so, or if you can get around 
that particular proxy.

XChat 2.6.3a and later apparently have better error reporting, so you 
may want to try a more recent version and see if it's more diagnostic.
