    I may have found a nother bug in sbbs chat function. If you press control -U then select the users node number it will not force the chat to start. If you do not use control-U and just select he users node number it works fine.

    I can't figure out what you're talking about. CTRL-U -> C -> user gives me the same result as going to the [C]hat -> P -> user.

    Also, only a chat initiating from a sysop account will force the other user into chat.
