Color codes which end in commas both reset background and print comma as literal #740

When irssi formats an IRC message containing a color code such as ^C2,, it treats the , as both literal and part of the color code; that is:

^C1,0black on white; ^C2blue on white -> black on white; , blue on white, in the specified colors.
^C1,0black on white; ^C2,blue on default -> black on white; , ,blue on default, again in the specified colors; note the comma before "blue" in the result.

^C2, resets the background, and sets the foreground to blue, then prints a comma.
^C, resets the background but not foreground, and prints the comma similarly.

It appears any color code which ends with a comma both resets the background and adds a literal comma to the string - it should likely only do one of these things; IMO it should reset the background, but I don't mind much either way.

Found on irssi 0.8.20; reproduced successfully on irssi 1.0.4.
