Bug Description

getaddrinfo() has been changed upstream to sort it's answers before returning them. Although this is configurable, this is still an incredibly broken default and we should absolutely not ship gutsy with this behaviour turned on (c.f. archive.ubuntu.com, releases.ubuntu.com etc.). See the linked Debian bug for more details.
