It would be very helpful if anyone affected by this bug could please
follow my directions here:


I'll reproduce them here. Please post any testing results to the *bug
report* where I'll see them, *not* to this mailing list. Thanks in

  Could people affected by the original problem reported at the top of
  this bug report please install the libc6 packages from here:
    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/cjwatson/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
  You can find the necessary public key and instructions here:
  This version of glibc incorporates a patch from Fedora which is said
  to address a similar-sounding issue, and I'd like to confirm whether
  it also fixes the problems people are encountering here.
  It would be nice if anyone with real IPv6 connectivity could also test
  this to ensure that I haven't broken anything for them. I've had a
  working IPv6 setup myself in the past, but it's broken at the moment
  and I thought I'd get this out for testing before spending too long
  trying to fix it.
