Changes for version 2.024 - 2016-02-06
- Work around issue where the connect fails on systems having only a loopback interface and where IO::Socket::IP is used as super class (default when available). Since IO::Socket::IP sets AI_ADDRCONFIG by default connect to localhost would fail on this systems. This happened at least for the tests, see https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=813796 Workaround is to explicitely set GetAddrInfoFlags to 0 if no GetAddrInfoFlags is set but the Family/Domain is given. In this case AI_ADDRCONFIG would not be useful anyway but would cause at most harm.
