True: There is an *actual* IPv6 monster eating the DNS for, no myth. 100% correlation with turning
the flag on and off in firefox as many times as I care to test it.

Almost certainly nothing to do with firefox itself though,
more likely some combination of strange an wondrous problems
with firewalls and DNS server forwarding and wot-not on the
long an winding road out of the corporate firewall I was
inside to the actual lookup of (but there
are a gazillion other <whatever> URLs it has no
problem resolving).
