Yes it was written as rpmnew, and indeed the default was the same. But 
using the original I was using before, changing nothing,  with [::] I 
could not connect after the upgrade. I restarted many times, and 
eventually changing the original to [*] allowed me to connect.

I then changed to the new conf (after changing a few things like using 
mysql to authenticate, minimum uid to match my setup), and again could 
not connect. Changing the new conf to [*] then solved it.

How are you disabling IPv6, maybe that is making the difference?
