Comment 111 for bug 417757

I strongly disagree, breaking IPv6 globally just because some people sit on broken resolvers is extremely bad. I suspect the IPv6 users group is at least as big as the one sitting on broken resolvers, and while the IPv6 group is getting larger every day the broken resolvers group should stagnate or even get smaller.

Earlier Ubuntu versions had a patched libc6 that disabled AAAA lookups for AF_UNSPEC _IF_ no global IPv6 addresses were configured on the system. This could be a way forward and would be in line what Windows is doing today.
