Description

With net-snmp v5.7 (current 2.4.5) snmpd will accept an IPv6 listen address without square brackets, with v5.9 (2.5.0 dev) it requires them to be wrapped in square brackets and will silently fail to start without them. Running in debug to stdout will show a failed to bind error for the v6 address.
