** Ange-ftp should ignore irrelevant IPv6 errors:

Message-Id: <4121-Tue23Mar2004165249+0100-piet@cs.uu.nl>
From: "Piet van Oostrum" <piet@cs.uu.nl>
To: emacs-pretest-bug@gnu.org
Subject: Ange-ftp can't deal with IPV6/IPV4 fallback

Symptoms:

C-x C-f /ftp.nluug.nl:/

The problem is that the DNS first gives an IPV6 address. However our
router doesn't do IPV6. Ftp then falls back to IPV4:

ftp> open ftp.nluug.nl
Trying 2001:610:1:80aa:192:87:102:36...
ftp: connect to address 2001:610:1:80aa:192:87:102:36: No route to host
Trying 192.87.102.36...
Connected to ftp.nluug.nl.

Ange-ftp chokes on the `No route to host' message and doesn't look any

further.

I think in the near future we will see more of this problem, so it might be
time to make anfe-ftp more intelligent.

* REDISPLAY RELATED BUGS

** Avoid unbreakable loops in redisplay.

Redisplay may loop if there is an error in some display property, e.g.
     (space 'left-margin)

A fix would be to somehow disable handling of display properties if an error
is encountered.
