I would first try and use Samba 3.6 or master, but there are still parts
of the domain membership code that suffers from this problem (I noticed
this when doing other work nearby).  We know this is a problem, and it
is the goal of Samba to be IPv6 ready.

Jeremy (CC'ed) has taken a special interest in this area.
