    This is why it doesn't work anymore, as it shouldn't have in the first
    place. Thanks for pointing this out. I did not know that source
    address selection is automatic, depending on the multicast address
    prefix (ff05::/16, ff02::/16, etc) and the IPV6_MULTICAST_IF option, so
    I instinctively did bind the socket to the unicast address and not the
    multicast address.

    Now it seems to work like a charm. =)
