[Pkg-privacy-maintainers] Bug#895903: [torsocks] AAAA replies from Tor not handled

Package: torsocks
Severity: important

torsocks version : 2.2.0-1+deb9u1

Tor now returns IPv6 addresses when hostnames are resolved, but torsocks 
cannot handle this case.

To reproduce:
     torsocks -d nc ipv6.test-ipv6.com 80

[I'm using torsocks against the SOCKS5 proxy in TorBrowser.]

This makes it tricky to report bugs using
    torsocks reportbug-ng
as bugs.debian.org will sometimes resolve to a AAAA, causing the whole 
program to abort with no error message.
