Fortunately, I believe there is no such problem.  However, X stricts
the order of:

	socket() -> gethostbyname() -> connect() / bind()

then, SocketOpen() calls socket() and SocketINETConnect() calls the
To choose an address family by DNS query, a protocol family is not
determined until doing DNS query.  So, typical IPv6 application does:

	getaddrinfo() -> socket() -> connect() / bind()

I have no idea if it is okay to change to call socket() from
SocketINETConnect(), and SocketOpen() does nothing.
