Bug#608061: libc6: dns-lookup unusable in mixed ipv4/ipv6-networks

tag 608061 + unreproducible

Your trace proves nothing, this is a tcpdump with no data inside, you
give actually no way to reproduce the problem.

I do have an ipv6 enabled machine here, and I can connect to ipv4-only
hosts just fine with w3m or any other programs.

Have you modified your /etc/gai.conf, are you using nscd with hosts
caching ?
