[php-maint] Bug#481317: Bug in Lighttpd

Lighttpd doesn't properly support IPv6, it just listens on AF_INET6 and
accepts both IPv4 and IPv6 on it. Instead it should be listening
seperately on IPv4 and IPv6, then it would get IPv4 connections as and IPv6 as 2001:db8::1 instead of the mapped addresses.

Short-term solution for Lighttpd:
 1) configure both an IPv4 and IPv6 socket
 2) fix the thing to strip the ::ffff: from the address when it is a
    mapped prefix.

That ::ffff:x.x.x.x is used in a data structure, fine, but it should
never be shown to the user.
