I've noticed that Emacs when given a bogus filename will take any open  
error as ENOENT and create a new file buffer, so you only find out if  
you pay close attention to the minibuffer during startup or you try to  
save the file later.  Arguably this is a bug, although I think they  
justify it as "you might do something that makes the filename legal  
before saving".  (Compare opening a file in a nonexistent directory.   
Admittedly modern Emacs prompts you to try M-x make-directory RET RET  
or similar in that case.)
