I had blocked exit to common IRC ports before this problem arise. When I
was allowing exit to common irc ports my server was banned in couple of
hours from irc-servers that I used myself so I had to deny exit to irc.
In this case the offending exit port was 8080 (as far as I know there
was sitting some custom irc-server behind that port).
