It is certainly libc :| I've found bugs before in older libc's about how
it resolves names when there is the possibilitiy of having an IPv6 result.
I suspect this specific case is caused by a buggy upstream name server and
(possibly correct?) early aborting with libc6.
You will likely have the same problem with all programs that use
getaddrinfo :|
