Perhaps the fix for bug #15559 fixed this too, although I haven't thought about it terribly hard. Closing as suggested.

Freeciv-2.2.4 working fine. You can close this bug.

Is this still the case?

When freeciv is compiled with ipv6 support, and system doesn't support ipv6, then freeciv falls into infinite loop after clicking to new game.

Strace output:
munmap(0x7914849e0000, 4096) = 0
socket(PF_INET6, SOCK_STREAM, IPPROTO_IP) = -1 EAFNOSUPPORT (Address family not supported by protocol)
nanosleep({0, 100000000}, NULL) = 0
wait4(31970, NULL, WNOHANG, NULL) = 0
time([1288516805]) = 1288516805
time([1288516805]) = 1288516805
open("/etc/hosts", O_RDONLY|O_CLOEXEC) = 6
fstat(6, {st_mode=S_IFREG|0644, st_size=1737, ...}) = 0
mmap(NULL, 4096, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMOUS, -1, 0) = 0x7914849e0000
read(6, "# /etc/hosts: Local Host Databas"..., 4096) = 1737

After compiling without ipv6 support freeciv runs fine.
