I can confirm that I've seen this license too. An example is in newlib (https://sourceware.org/newlib/COPYING.NEWLIB) about half-way down.

Subject: Does Anyone Recognize this License

I have now run across the license below several times.

It is not on the SPDX list.

It is used frequently in the wild. (search string "the author is not responsible for the consequences of use of this software, no matter how awful, even if they arise from defects in it".

Has there been any previous action to identify or add this license?
