Listening on :: no longer means you're listening on both IPv6 and IPv4 on at least Debian testing, and surely on other systems too one day or the other.

Apparently there's a sysctl to fix it but who knows how cross-platform it is. I guess the best way out is to just have two listening sockets.

Definitely should fix this before the next release.
