Bug#616038: mplayer: incorrectly shows numeric IPv6 address.

Package: mplayer
Version: 2:1.0~rc3++final.dfsg1-1
Severity: minor
Tags: ipv6


IPv6 works in HTTP streams without bigger problem,
but I found messages from mplayer not very helpful,
as they are incorrect.

$ mplayer http://tytus.semp.shell.la/Tromboon-sample.ogg

$ host tytus.semp.shell.la
tytus.semp.shell.la has IPv6 address 2001:470:1f0b:527:21e::1:2

It looks that is actually 0x20.0x01.0x04.0x70 :)

Please fix it. Full short notation isn't needed, redundant zeros may still be
in address without hurting anything.
