Bug Description

In dconf I have the network-interface configured to lo (loopback). I use ssh with port forwarding so I don't need or want vino externally accessible. While port 5900 ends up restricted to localhost, port 5800 is not:

$ netstat -an | grep -i tcp | grep -i listen
tcp 0 0* LISTEN
tcp 0 0* LISTEN
tcp 0 0* LISTEN
tcp 0 0* LISTEN
tcp 0 0* LISTEN
tcp 0 0* LISTEN
tcp6 0 0 :::5800 :::* LISTEN
tcp6 0 0 ::1:5900 :::* LISTEN
tcp6 0 0 :::5298 :::* LISTEN
tcp6 0 0 :::22 :::* LISTEN
tcp6 0 0 ::1:631 :::* LISTEN
$ lsof -i tcp:5800
vino-serv 10382 rogerb 16u IPv6 50199 0t0 TCP *:5800 (LISTEN)
