:After some brief testing of latest -master, noticed that e.g. mpd (musicpd)
:listens on *:6600 (got that info from sockstat(1)), but I could connect to
:that port on only one IP. localhost (::1 or did not work, but one
:of the "outside" IPs did. Since I tried ::1,, 192.168.0.X and only
:worked on the last configured IP 10.0.0.X, I guess it only received
:connections on one IP instead of all.
:Please do not CC me, since I already receive everything from these MLs.

    Is mpd using UDP?  I think I may have been able to reproduce an issue
    with UDP but I'm not sure yet.
