Why is there such trouble with IPV6 sockets and mapped IPV4 addresses?
(255.255.xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx, right?) Seems to me it should work either
completely or not at all. Is it simply an implementation bug, or is there
something fundamentally wrong with current IPV6 the way it handles this?
Anyone that cares to satisfy my curiosity has my thanks. =]
