UnresolvedAddressException not thrown for incorrect hostname

      Description

      Due to the implementation of getaddrinfo on non-Windows platforms InetAddress.getAllByName behaves differently across platforms. On non-Windows platforms a lookup of "127.0.0.1 test" will successfully resolve, on Windows an UnknownHostException will be thrown. RFC 952 (https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc952) appears to preclude hostnames with spaces.
