IPv6 addresses not handled/displayed correctly

Description

It appears that WP does not display or store IPv6 addresses correctly. For instance, a commenter from address 2002:4cbb:a5f8::4cbb:a5f8 left a comment, and his IP address was incorrectly recorded and displayed under Comments and in the notification email as 2002458458. This is also how the address appears in the database.

IPv6 addresses contain the characters 0-9, a-f and : (colon). These characters should not be filtered when sanitizing an IP address.
