I'm not entirely sure why, I already noticed that f.i. the -host option
only accepts a fully qualified hostname. I'm actually surprised that
user_at_ip-address passes a usable token to venus. I would have expected
that you would need the more complicated,

    clog -host user_at_domain.tld

I wanted to get a new release out before the end of this week, but I'll
have a quick look for any obvious problems. Could you send me an strace
of the failing clog?

In the long run, I've got some things ready to go that actually change a
lot in clog, au, cpasswd and auth2 to make them work with ipv6. The new
code already fixes the -host fqdn issue, and possibly even this one.
