That server has no v4 address.  For obvious reasons we use the standard
version first and only then fallback to a legacy IP version .-).

The problem is more that the all machines now have v6 enabled but no
address configured.  It is a bug in GnuPG's server selection code not to
check whether a real v6 interface is up.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
