IPv6 is completly backwards compatible with IPv4. So all IPv6 aware
applications should 'just work' in plain IPv6 networks.

Could you please give a point to the appropriate bugreports in
applications that don't behave in the way you expect?

Please define 'slow connection'. I cannot reproduce your problem.

I used to have an IPv6 tunnel at home, but it is currently offline,
since I'm searching for a new tunnel broker atm. I have found it very
convinient to have IPv6 enabled by default.
