server buffer name is in buffer list but in mode line. I suppose that mismatch is normal?
Nothing was copied out of dictionary buffer into channel buffer at point
The version of rcirc.el distributed with Emacs 22.3 defvar's
rcirc-server-buffer, so it has a global value (nil) and buffer-local-value
will not signal an error (for any BUFFER argument).  This leads me to
that you have not loaded the 22.3 rcirc library, but some other IRC client.

In emacs -Q, `M-x rcirc' creates and selects a buffer named
it also creates a buffer named address@hidden, where `C-h v
rcirc-server-buffer' yields #<buffer **>.

How does that compare with your experience?

Okay. Your function does work if I use rcirc instead of erc. But since
there is no menu support for rcirc I don't know how to get slash
commands without /help. I did just learn C-u M-x rcirc. I'll try
changing from ERC to rcirc.

Or modify what I suggested to find and switch to an erc buffer instead
of an rcirc buffer.  Perhaps

        (or erc-active-buffer (car (erc-buffer-list)))


        (pop-to-buffer irc-buffer)
