Now it does.

Unfortunately, that means it no longer necessarily makes sense to choose
the first IP address in the address list for the "Interfaces..." dialog
- perhaps it should choose the first IPv4 and first IPv6 addresses.

Ah, thank you!

Well, I was thinking of a details (check?) button for that dialog, showing only limitted information (e.g. only the first IPv4 address) like today when not checked (default), and all available details else, like any address available.
As I've noticed that my SuSE box supports IPv6, I will have a look how 
it should be displayed (as IPv6 addresses are sometimes a bit lengthy).

BTW: are there other huge changes planned in the near future? As my SuSE box is not working with a synchronized copy of the windows sources (as somethings seemed to change in the file format), I have to update two SVN copies (one on my Win32 machine and one for the SuSE box) which nearly takes ages over a telephone line.
