Commit b13d71d5 by pdw

Patch by Robert Scheck <robert@fedoraproject.org> for iftop <= 1.0pre2 to avoid an

assertion failure if an "invalid" (as in outside of IPv4 or IPv6) address family is
passed to nss-myhostname's gethostbyaddr_r(). For further information please have a
look to Red Hat Bugzilla IDs #839750, #847124, #868065, #961236 and #1007434:
