You probably have KILL switched to ON in your nickserv settings. "Kill" is a security option which gives a person 20 seconds to authenticate to Nickserv to make sure he/she is a valid user to use that specific nick. If you don't authenticate within that time, it automatically changes your nick to a random one.

Read the following from our manual:

well, to be precise, the ON settings gives 60 seconds, while the QUICK setting gives the 20 seconds delay before the nick gets changed.
Seeing there is a 20 second delay between nick changes, I assume your KILL has been set to QUICK by you.

An extensive howto in regards to the KILL feature, can be found on our Wiki page
