I realize this may not help you, but I can tell you that this
functionality does work here, I rely on IRC pounces based on "Has signed
on" conditions.  Other conditions likely won't work as IRC doesn't
supply the necessary details.

You might want to delete the buddy-pounce and recreate it from an IM
window you started by double-clicking an item in your buddy list, this
will avoid any typos/errors in the choice of nick and servers.
