[ircd-ratbox] New setup config help.

You're lacking the following settings in your channel{} block:

default_split_user_count = 0;
default_split_server_count = 0;
no_create_on_split = no;
no_join_on_split = no;

... those are copied from example.conf and the values shown are not  
recommented for production usage - you should change them.
The first two determine how your server knows if it is in split mode  
or not, while the latter configure how it behaves in that mode.
