double colon in IPv6 address does not work with ip_ plugin

When you replace all instances of :: in your IP by :0: (or as many as needed) the plugin works well!
Example: ip_2a00:dd0:0:13:b:a::1 -> Doesn't work ip_2a00:dd0:0:13:b:a:0:1 -> Does work
And: ip_2a00:dd0:0:13:b::1 -> Doesn't work ip_2a00:dd0:0:13:b:0:0:1 -> Does work
I don't know if this problem originates from ip6tables, or the plugin in Munin, but replacing instances of :: by :0: solved all problems for me!
