Respect short_name changes #563

If you like to change short_name on channels, either directly using the /buffer set short_name dogfood/general or via /buffer_autoset -- either way, wee-slack doesn't respect the change made.

I think that when updating the typing notification it doesn't respect the new short name so instead of going ">dogfood/general" then "dogfood/general" it goes to its internal name ">general" "#general".

I will look at submitting a patch to fix this behavior.

One workaround could be to disable plugins.var.python.slack.channel_name_typing_indicator.

@auscompgeek that work around does work -- hence confirming the source of the bug.

I can confirm - changed short_name is restored on some other events other than typing notification too.

I'm using short_names on buflist to maintain its small size, some abbrevs are also very handy with plugin to jump between bufers with few taps (I have about 300+ buffers)
