Comment 277 for bug 417757

| ipv6.disable=1 does not make any difference for me in Lucid (I haven't
| tested that with karmic, since the eglibc in karmic-updates fixed it)

That's interesting, since eglibc does iterate over configured network
interfaces and only sets seen_ipv6 if you have a non-IPv4 address which
is also not loopback

This suggests it's taking another code path from what I was assuming
from reading the code.

| Makes no difference here. Is that still the same patch as
| local-ipv6-lookup.diff in karmic-updates?

It's a somewhat simplified version which I believe should have worked,
but apparently doesn't.
