xdm from unstable: Address family not supported by protocol


I have a Debian system that I just upgraded from Stable to Unstable.
Xdm allowed remote logins on that machine. However, I cannot get the
updated xdm 6.8.2.dfsg.1-7 to reply any xdm queries. "netstat -lup"
shows that xdm doesn't listen on the xdmcp port at all. Is there
something I missed?

The only hint I have is in /var/log/xdm.log, which says: 
XDMCP socket creation failed: Address family not supported by protocol

What does that mean? Does the new xdm require a network protocol I do
not have in my kernel? Maybe ipv6? As soon as I downgrade xdm to the
sarge version, xdm runs perfectly again? Any tips?
