           Summary: xcb_auth.c doesn't treat ipv6-mapped ipv4-addresses
           Product: XCB
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW

<no_where> As far as I can see, this will copy exactly one byte, because

<no_where> christoph4: at least in the old libX11/.../ConnDis.c, 4 bytes were
copied explicitly

i've checked the xcb_auth.c code of current git head, and it matches the
