That is true, however, if IPv6 completes first, and IPv4 (still running
in the background) eventually ends up failing, the *entire connection*
will be torn down - including the perfectly working IPv6 connectivity.
So the successfully connected state only lasts for about 20 seconds.

A trivial patch that fixes this problem is attached, please apply.
