Actuall the "Unauthorized connection" notice only
displays the nickname, which is useless. it would be
nicer to have something like

Notice -- Unauthorized connection from nickname [ip] {why}

as why would say why its unauthorized, no I line,
klined, local glined, global glined, whatever else is
possible.

    We actually removed the IP from the "Unauthorized
    connection" notice because it was possible to leak other
    servers' IP addresses to opers that way. Code-wise, the
    specific "Unauthorized connection" message comes about when
    conf_check_client() returns ACR_NO_AUTHORIZATION, which only
    happens when we cannot attach an I-line to a client or when
    the conf line has become illegal (?), so that should give
    you the information you desire.

    I'm going to go ahead and close this RFE (despite the
    missing IP issue). I'm sure we would consider adding a log
    message to that code path, so if you would like that, just
    open another RFE for it. It wouldn't make the initial
    u2.10.12 release, but it could easily make the .01 patch
    release...
