  Apr 10 08:53:16 jinx dhcpcd[14261]: iwm0: adding default route via fe80::c0ea:b0ff:fe55:6190
I am not sure why that causes problems, with no available useful v6
  addr any attempt to send to destination v6 addrs should immediately
  fail - but it does make a difference, stuff like connections
  to * go much slower (that is, connect much slower) when
  that default route exists - after I delete it, the v6 attempt immediately
  fails, and fall back to v4 happens immediately (and that works).   The
  ideal solution would be for my ISP to support v6, but that one I cannot
  control.....  (and yes, I know I could set up a tunnel).

That's a totally different issue.
Please create a new PR for it because there really is no right way of solving this.
