Mine is listing first, so it may depend on the network stack
too (I run some pretty young Linux 4.4 kernel..).
I'll try the other way around though, but it can't be a solution anyway.
It worked with sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.lo.disable_ipv6=0 for me.

OK, I'll (try to) fix the other tests which don't pass with "Listen <port>"...
- t/apache/expr.t
- t/modules/access.t
- t/modules/setenvif.t
- t/ssl/varlookup.t

It may be related to REMOTE_ADDR being IPv6 now, will check.

Yes, a quick patch, not meant to be committed as is, more to keep the
original code in mind while trying several things :)
