Bug#304657: Installation report for rc3
reassign 304657 netcfg
retitle 304657 Reports wrong address when inadvertently entered a high ASCII character

I have reproduced this in RC3. However, I did so by entering the
10.0.0.à, then Backspace to erase the "à", then entering "1"
If I enter 10.0.0.1 without the typo, netcfg behaves correctly.
