Failed to convert source address to presentation format!?! Error: Unknown
The message "The requested address is not valid in its context" is still
printed though it is no longer a fatal error since r28874. When this
happens, it uses the address of the interface as the source address
What is your "nmap --iflist"? Probably one of the interface addresses is
the one causing the error about the presentation format.
