* common/gdm-address.c: (gdm_address_new_from_sockaddr), (gdm_address_peek_local_list): * common/gdm-address.h: * daemon/gdm-xdmcp-display-factory.c: (do_bind), (create_address_from_request), (decode_packet): * gui/simple-chooser/gdm-host-chooser-widget.c: (decode_packet), (find_broadcast_addresses), (add_hosts): The function gdm_address_new_from_sockaddr_storage gets called in a few places with socket addresses that aren't necessary sockaddr_storage bytes big (all the places that call getaddrinfo).
