See bug #82468. It's an incompatibility in the linux 2.2 kernel ipv6
structures and the glibc 2.2 ipv6 structures. One could argue it's a system 
misconfiguration, but the ssh package maintainer choose for the --ipv4-default 
workaround apparently. 

The true way goes over a rope which is not stretched at any great height
but just above the ground.  It seems more designed to make people stumble
than to be walked upon.
