Comment (by tux):

 That reminds me, I also didn't manage to update the patch with elb's
 feedback yet. Therefore I'm quoting the according lines from the xmpp chat
 back then (and hope s/he doesn't mind):

 (17:05:59) elb: T_X: so, as I understand that patch, if the v6only option
 is not set and the listen address that comes back is IPv6, it tries to
 unset the IPV6_V6ONLY sockopt?
 (17:07:04) elb: and this condition is set when dual_stack_support is true,
 otherwise it's set false and the listen is AF_INET
 (17:08:13) elb: purple_network_has_dual_stack_support leaks a socket
 (17:08:52) elb: and that goto is unnecessary
 (17:11:58) elb: I think maybe _dual should be the default, and the other
 listen made _v4only or something
