commenting /etc/hosts works - lynx shows as from an ip6 address in logs - note
my box is running ip6 aware bind9 and has an ip6 dns entry - don't know how
that would be on 10.3 or 10.4 - netbsd is famously usable with ip6. Certainly
the system resolver routines have to ask for ip6 resolution first for client
programs; lynx and others need to be sent over that stack from the lookup, so
having an ip6 aware nameserver in /etc/resolv.conf is helpful.

before you bang your head against that wall:
tunneled addresses are only good for one host; they are leaf nodes only; won't
route or grow a network (you need a real *not* tunneled address for that, ask
me how I know) -; use your mac to get the 6 address, and make sure all
packet filtering is off.
