Well, using older (Debian) distributions will see that issue. The IPv6
patch has been added to Debian not long ago.

They don't add new functionality to Debian stable, just fixing bugs. And
that IPv6 patch can be considered as 'new feature'. Debian is just not a
rolling release - live with it or change to another distro. All has it's
pros and cons. I live pretty well with Debian unstable (since ~ 2002).
Fix and new features come in pretty fast - except as in times of freeze
(we are currently in (deep ?) freeze).

BTW, the perl people never added the missing IPv6 code. Maybe they
abandoned the module we currently use - and we should use a different
module !?. But I am not into perl on purpose - it's one of the most
stupid programming languages I have ever seen (in short: write once,
read never - hard to maintain). It's simply not 'future save'.
