Bug#420301: libc6: IPv6 transport fails for resolver

No, I'm not sure this bug was triggered by a 2.5 upgrade. This is the
first time I tried using IPv6 for DNS transport.
When I've tried using it, my resolv.conf looks like:
(Of course, I've tried with the options line uncommented as well.)
I have not modified my nsswitch.conf from its default, and it contains:
# Example configuration of GNU Name Service Switch functionality.
# If you have the `glibc-doc' and `info' packages installed, try:
# `info libc "Name Service Switch"' for information about this file.
hosts: files dns
protocols: db files
services: db files
ethers: db files
rpc: db files
Is there anything I can do to debug this directly on my system? I don't
see anything in my system logs, which I didn't really expect to.
