> Bug description:
> In Karmic, DNS lookups take a very long time with some routers, because
> glibc's DNS resolver tries to do IPv6 (AAAA) lookups even if there are no
> (non-loopback) IPv6 interfaces configured. Routers which do not repond to
> this cause the lookup to take 20 seconds (until the IPv6 query times out).
