ircnn-1.3devel problems

I found a nice little bug in ircnn-1.3devel, a few of the servers on
newnet still apparently run it, after i've told 'em bout it obviously
they don't care enough to have the servers upgrade, so time to
make them upgrade :)

Here's the scoop:

A Misleading pointer (pointing to a structure instead of a string) causes
the ircd to core, and possibly keep on coring until the note file is

The bug:
/quote note spy +sucjr ChanServ
/quote note spy ChanServ

wait a few minutes on the server, or switch to another one, either way, it
crashes them. Alot of the servers are patched, but few aren't...

The patch:
Line 1517 note.c change:

spy_server = sptr->user->server;


spy_server = sptr->user->server->name;

kind of a stupid bug, bug quite fun ntl :)
