[distcc] Problems with distcc 2.18 and mandatory '--allow'

Version:   distcc 2.18, packaged by Mandrake 10.1 Official
Platform:   Mandrake 10.1 Official, gcc 3.4.1

There seems to be a problem with with the new mandatory --allow in 
distcc 2.18.  I try to run the following:

distccd --daemon --user nobody --allow

and the result in /etc/log/syslog is:

(dcc_listen_by_addr) ERROR: bind of failed: Address already 
in use
dcc_exit) exit: code 102; self: 0.000000 user 0.000000 sys; children: 
0.000000 user 0.000000 sys

There's nothing else running on port 3632.  It's almost as if the IP 
specified by '--allow' is conflicting with the default '' used 
by '--listen'.

Distcc was working correctly (on the same hardware) before v2.18.

Thanks for any info,
