privmsgs dont open new tabs

despite having 'open dialogs in tabs' set in my preferences, when someone /msg's
me, it doesn't open a new tab, but appears in a random existing tab like so..

If I initiate a /dialog with someone though, their responses do go to that tab,
so it's just the creation of a new tab that's failing.
2.6.0-5 still borken.
Ugh. I went digging through my xchat.conf, and found this..
gui_auto_open_dialog = 0
Flipping it to a '1' fixes this problem.
The only problem being - I don't see any way to set that setting in the GUI, and
upgrading from an earlier release silently changed this to '0' for me.
I notice we're a few versions behind upstream, maybe this is fixed there
already? I'm puzzled as to why more people haven't been affected by this
problem. I guess not everyone keeps their ~/.xchat dirs around when they upgrade
to a new release.
I stopped using xchat sometime earlier this year, so this may have been fixed
for all I know. Either way, I don't really care, so close this out if you want.
At least in 2.8.4, gui_auto_open_dialog defaults to 1. It is also set to 1 in
my config file which got originally created in 2004 (and I didn't touch this
