When miau is compiled with ipv6 support, specifying
servers that only have ipv4 addresses (like the whole
of quakenet) will cause it to fail with "unable to
resolve address" when trying to connect to the server.
The address of the ipv4 server needs to be specified
as an IP address with ::FFFF: to resolve this.

    This is a feature, not a bug. See the configure script: "--enable-ipv6 enable IPv6 ONLY -support (no IPv4!)". I know it's annoying and I know I could use getaddrinfo to resolve the address but lately it's just been too much trouble to do that. Patches are welcome. :-)

    Reassigning as feature request. (Lets see if I can do that.)
    Was a bug: "miau doesn't connect to ipv4 servers if configured with ipv6"
