            Bug ID: 1260
           Summary: If set with "localhost", a new rule is duplicated
           Product: iptables
           Version: 1.6.x
          Hardware: x86_64
                OS: Debian GNU/Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P5
         Component: iptables
          Assignee: netfilter-buglog at lists.netfilter.org
          Reporter: fredgib at free.fr

If I append a new rule (in any chain of the filter table) with "localhost" as
the source or the destination, then the rule will be duplicated: the command
"iptables -L" shows it twice, and it is possible to replace/delete one of the
two instances without altering the other with for example "iptables -D".

The command "iptables -L -n" shows both instances with "" instead of

If I use "" instead of "localhost" while I append the rule, the rule
is NOT duplicated and appears normally with "iptables -L", displaying
"localhost" if I don't use "-n" and displaying "" if I do.
