Bug#432227: gdm: getaddrinfo fails when ipv6 is enabled

We dbged gdm again, and indeed we don't get the same error.
I see your patch add:

hints.ai_family |= AF_INET6;

from my limited knowledge I think this is not correct in c.
We removed that line and everything worked again.
We think it should be AF_UNSPEC, but we don't have ipv6 to test it here.
