  in fact the reason is probably that you disabled ipv6 on your host
blacklisting the ipv6 module, and I enabled ipv6 by default in lighttpd
with the previous upload. If that's the case, the solution for you is to
comment out the ipv6 setting, and please close the bug, as Debian
default installs are supposed to support ipv6 by default, else I'm
interested in the details.
