dirmngr vs ip addresses in keyserver URIs

I've just noticed that since I've upgraded to gpg 2.1 it has been unable
to retrieve keys from the keyservers.

My gpg.conf still has 'keyserver hkp://', and I've tried adding
that also to dirmngr.conf, but it always fails.

Strace(8)ing dirmngr showed that it cannot handle ip addresses in the
URI.  Switching to hkp://localhost worked.

Typing is still quite challenging, so please excuse that I'm not
offering a patch.

I'm currently using 2.1.5 via the gentoo ebuild.
