Bug#616687: The webserver is listening on blacklisted ipv6

Package: thttpd
Severity: normal

The thttpd web server appears to be listening for ipv6 traffic even though
the ipv6 kernel module is blacklisted and not loaded.

netstat -a|grep www
tcp6       0      0 [::]:www                [::]:*                  LISTEN

This protocol is not supported on this LAN segment

The /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf file contains the following entries:
blacklist ipv6

We should not be listening on ipv6 or displaying addresses in ipv6 format
when ipv6 is blacklisted within the kernel.
