How long a delay do you see?  I see a rapid no-route-to-host without a
packet even leaving.

It seems that we should have something global about whether one wants v4
or v6 or both.  I'm sympathetic to you wanting to turn v6 off, but it
seems like it should be on by default.   About half of the LANs I use
have v6, perhaps more.
