root@eris ~ $ ps auxf | grep '[b]itlbee'
bitlbee  26593  0.0  0.1  48032  1276 ?        Ss   22:49   0:00 /usr/sbin/bitlbee -p 6667 -P /var/run/ -F -i localhost
root@eris ~ $ netstat -lnpt | grep bitlbee
tcp        0      0*               LISTEN      26593/bitlbee   

I expected bitlbee to listen on *and* ::1

@mcepl: Patch applied in r1012, thanks!

Not closing this ticket because, well, that patch is for systemd socket activation only, not for -i localhost. Although TBH it might be a user error, specifying ::1 could solve it, I don't know.
