I generally do my browsing over an ssh tunnel to somewhere not on a

reducing the number of moving parts I have to maintain, I tried using
ssh's built-in SOCKS proxy (the DynamicForward option in the config
file) instead. That works well for most web sites, but if the web site has a AAAA record -- and that includes -- the connection
returns EOF immediately.

Any fixes?  Work-arounds?

this probably isn't what you're looking for, but have you thought of
trying something like delegate?

(also replaces squid)

I'll take a look at it, though it's not only another moving part, from that web page it appears to be not just a general-purpose tunnel and proxy but also a floor wax and a dessert topping....
