CTCP action sending extra characters
When using certain characters, it seems there are extra characters being sent.
You can only see this when using a client other than quassel.
Not sure of the specifics of whats causing this, or if there are any other characters that are being sent in this way, but it can be easily reproduced by using the \ character in a /me
Example: /me \o/
Will output this in quassel: -*- rikai \o/
But this in other clients: * +rikai \\o/

As requested, adding a note that this was tested against multiple clients. They all interpreted it in the same way that was shown in the example (which was from mirc specifically).the following clients were tested:
- colloquy mobile
- smuxi (i believe so anyway)
