The idea was to make the IP parsing do what inet_aton does.

Testing with python:
>>> import socket
>>> socket.inet_aton("")
>>> socket.inet_aton("")
>>> socket.inet_aton("")
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
socket.error: illegal IP address string passed to inet_aton

If you don't like this behaviour, edit qipaddress.cpp and on line 97, change
        quint64 ll = qstrtoull(ptr, &endptr, 0, &ok);
        quint64 ll = qstrtoull(ptr, &endptr, 10, &ok);
