Description Ulrich Drepper 2006-04-30 13:33:59 EDT
Description of problem:
telnet still uses gethostbyname.  This can cause problems in IPv6 environments,
in part due to the way gethostbyname etc are implemented.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.nm -D --undef /usr/bin/telnet | fgrep gethostbyname
Actual results:
                 U gethostbyname

Expected results:
No output

Additional info:
The attached mostly untested patch should fix it.  For real IPv6 support a lot
more work is needed.
