ncat http proxy listen bug

Dear nmap developer community,

it seems ncat doesn't honor the bind address when listening as http
proxy, as can be seen when running ncat in (very) verbose mode:

   $ ncat -v -v -v --proxy-type http -l 8081
   Ncat: Version 7.93 ( )
   NCAT DEBUG: Initialized fdlist with 2 maxfds
   Ncat: Listening on :::8081
   NCAT DEBUG: Added fd 3 to list, nfds 1, maxfd 3
   Ncat: Listening on
   NCAT DEBUG: Added fd 4 to list, nfds 2, maxfd 4
   NCAT DEBUG: selecting, fdmax 4
ncat states it is listening on instead.

I tried tracking it down but I don't see why it would behave that way.
Still I suppose it should actually bind only to the provided address.

Thanks for your help,
best regards,
