[Bug 631064] Re: connection "forbidden" on localhost after wireless connected

Hi,

In both situations the same list is produced:
BEFORE:
getent hosts ::1
::1             localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
getent hosts 127.0.0.1
127.0.0.1       localhost
getent hosts localhost
::1             localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
getent hosts ip6-localhost
::1             localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback

AFTER:
getent hosts ::1
::1             localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
getent hosts 127.0.0.1
127.0.0.1       localhost
getent hosts localhost
::1             localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
getent hosts ip6-localhost
::1             localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback

I've also altered on the hostnames used in the URL, and localhost
ip6-localhost ip6-loopback all act the same as in pages fetches before
wireless network got configured and access denied after.

I've tried a /etc/init.d/apache restart, and this still fails for
ip6-localhost ip6-loopback, both translate only into ::1 which is not
connected anymore (connection refused), whereas is would at leas provide
a '403 forbidden' right after the wireless network got configured.

localhost succeeds, but has an extra translation first into ::1 and then 127.0.0.1
See selections for wget for localhost and ip6-localhost, (before wireless configured, after wireless configured, after apache restart):
