Probably same thing as in a bug report filed a while ago. See: https://bugs.launchpad.net/linuxdcpp/+bug/405321

Most likely a wrong character encoding selected.

filed by you apparently...

Anyway the "weird" characters in opchat nickname, are probably discarded by linuxdcpp because you've selected the wrong encoding for the hub. When you try to send a message to the opchat, hub discards the message because the destination nick doesn't exist. The reason why it doesn't exist is the discarded characters, hub knows the destination by it's whole name, linuxdcpp tries to send it to the 'nick' with the incorrectly converted characters removed.

well its weird because i do use not a weird charatcer or anything
also i use latest ubuntu
and dc++ uses deafult system.....

Weird character in this case is anything non-ascii (7bit). eg. "safe characters" are a-z A-Z 0-9 and and few others (+-[])...

System default is probably UTF-8, which in most cases is the wrong choice for DC++. Try to change the hub specific encoding to CP1252 (if in western europe), CP1251 for eastern europe (if you know the encoding which is used in windows, then select that). You'll need to do this in the favorite hub properties for the saved hubs.
