A server advertising 127/16 should be prevented by this code, yes. And
it does seem to be; I haven't seen anything in this thread showing a
server advertising such an address. I explained earlier in the thread
how this situation can happen, and RT 131784 has some ways where the
code could be changed to avoid this kind of situation.
