 WordPress shows IPv6 IPs for comments

 * with only the last part of the IP
 * without the : seperators.
 * with all non-number parts of the IP stripped.

 For example,


 is by WordPress shown as:


 ...which is very different from the IP. It's not even possible to make out
 what subnet the IP belongs to because the letters are stripped.

 A little note on WordPress and IPv6: It works. It's almost "IPv6 ready".
 You can login. You can write posts. Everything which is "critical" works.

 The ONLY issue with using WP on a IPv6-ready host that I've noticed is
 that it IPs all wrong.
