May this be related to what Jesper FA pointed out about programs running
create socket, listen instead of the usual create socket, bind, listen?
The posts were around the end of the last year.
Jesper FA wrote a patch to ctx16 attached to its mail. It adds an
additional check to the listen-syscall to limit IPs.
It worked fine for me, though I never understood why this patch never
made it into the offical ctx.
