use connect command first before joining channels
Or provide an explicit setting to authenticate at nickserv.
Since the last spam wave many channels are +r on Freenode (can be joined only by authenticated users), so when the join commands are send before the authentication they will fail.

The best solution here (short of an auto-join delay) is to use SASL authentication. You set this in the Network Settings dialog -> Auto Identify tab. SASL authentication happens during the connecting stage instead of just after a successful connection.
