Summary0005949: ERR_NOSUCHNICK should not be sent as a reply to NOTICE
DescriptionThis is a bit of a controversial issue, but:

        "automatic replies must never be
        sent in response to a NOTICE message. This rule applies to servers
        too - they must not send any error reply back to the client on
        receipt of a notice"
        'automatic replies MUST NEVER be sent in response to a NOTICE message.
        This rule applies to servers too - they MUST NOT send any error repl
        back to the client on receipt of a notice."

and Unreal does not follow this
Steps To ReproduceC -> S: NOTICE #nonexistent :hello there
S -> C: :My.Little.Server 401 foo #nonexistent :No such nick/channel
Additional InformationNote that InspIRCd behaves this way too, intentionally:
However, the Charybdis family and Ergo do follow it.
TagsNo tags attached.

Thanks for the report. Indeed, there's not really a consensus about it, but at UnrealIRCd we try to follow that rule. I've done fixes in this area before.
