I even posted examples of it working correctly.  You can check yourself 
by connecting to cvs.cvsnt.org over ipv6.

Please read http://www.cvsnt.org/wiki/BugReporting and provide all the
information requested.

Unless enough information is given to reproduce a problem then it's 
premature to start posting a 'fix' (especially an OS specific one, and 
*especially* when you haven't even said which OS its for).

If getaddrinfo is broken then no software is going to work correctly.
This is an issue for your OS vendor to fix.  Attempting to modify all
the software on your computer to work around it is futile.
