[Unbound-users] interface-automatic: yes and default listen addresses

Hi,

When not specifying an interface line, or when specifically specifying
127.0.0.1 and ::1, unbound should only bind to the localhost ip addresses.

This works fine, unless interface-automatic: yes is set. Then it suddenly
starts to bind on ANY.

This is somewhat problematic when shipping good defaults for distributions,
where you'd want to default on listening only only localhost, but you also
want to support multiple interfaces (once configured by the user) to use
the proper source IP on replies.
