Bug#535833: marked as done (general: Slow internet on iceweasel, epiphany and so on...)

]]  (Debian Bug Tracking System)

| if you have to disable ipv6 to make "the internet connection fast",
| the setup at your provider is broken - Debian comes with working out
| of the box support for ipv6, if you need to disable it to make the
| network work for you, there is something wrong on the network.

This is probably the same bug as
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=435646, which while a
bug in the DSL router of users is not possible for most of them to work
around, while fairly trivial for us to work around in libc.  (Heck, I
believe newer libcs already have the fix in.)

(I think we should fix it, but I'm not going to fight that battle again,
since apparently having loopback ipv6 when no other IPv6 address is
configured working is more important than making Debian usable for
certain people without having to disable ipv6.  See 441857 for the other
bug in the story.)
