Thanks Elliot,

Yeah, this one was introduced because the Win95 client didn't have inet_aton.
As all our machines are within the same domain we never suffered from this
bug until 5.0 was released, and others started reporting it.

inet_aton returns 0 on success, so the test needs to be negated. For the rest
it's exactly what's needed. I've already made the implementation of the
inet_aton function for win95 do the right thing (in most cases).
