> 37lnq2veifl4kar7.onion:6697 is up and running fine.

When connecting with `screen torsocks irssi -c 37lnq2veifl4kar7.onion -p
6697` I get the error message:

[(status)] [Jul 01 22:33:27] WARNING torsocks[26459]: [connect]
Connection to a local address are denied since it might be a TCP DNS
query to a local DNS server

So that irssi reports

Irssi: Unable to connect server 37lnq2veifl4kar7.onion port 6697
          [Operation not permitted]

Is this a misconfiguration on my part, or a bug with torsocks? It seems
that the old torsocks versions 1.1 and 1.2 had some similar
issues[0][1][2][3], but I'm not sure how much of that code is reused or
fixed in the 2.0 rewrite...
