It appears 1.2-3 doesn't accept MODE changes from unopped users in the
channel.  1.2-2 did (I tested it locally).  Sentinel's .op was
dependent on an undocumented quirk, rather than doing the right thing.
The issue you saw likely only happened when the admin client was not
opped, am I right?

In any case, the proper fix goes into Sentinel, available from
(That patch is from my development tree, but it should apply to 2.3
release without any problem)

Also, it's probably a good idea to check with me first, just in case
it was a problem in the service (which, in this case, it was) rather
than the ircd.
