Irssi crashes upon connect to an ipv6 xmpp server

Bug Description

Binary package hint: irssi

I'm using gw6c with freenet6 to supply ipv6 connectivity to my computer. irssi connects successfully to an xmpp server when the tunnel is down, but crashes and dies when the tunnel is up and it tries to use IPv6. The last lines on screen mention

Using the -4 option with /connect does not force a v4 connection for a predefined xmpp network, so the only way to connect to xmpp when the tunnel is up is to specify the IPv4 address with the -host option.
