           Summary: X11 forwarding broken.
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 4.5p1
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: FreeBSD
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: sshd
        AssignedTo: bitbucket at mindrot.org
        ReportedBy: marka at isc.org

Created an attachment (id=1343)
 --> (http://bugzilla.mindrot.org/attachment.cgi?id=1343)
X11 bind(2) error handling.

I was testing FreeBSD 6-STABLE with no IPv4 interfaces configured.
I was unable to forward X11 in this configuration.

The reason it failed was that IPv4 was the last address family
returned by getaddrinfo(). The attached patch changes the error
behaviour on bind(2) failures to be dependent on errno and not
the position in the list returned by getaddrinfo().

Also logged w/ FreeBSD as bin/115960.
