I've got the feeling that used to work at some point, but I can't get it
to work for me right now, either.

Huh? Not on my copy of v3-5-test, which shouldn't be too different from
3.5.8. Not sure about 3.3.15, but that's in security fixes only mode, so
I wouldn't hold my breath for that one being fixed.

As far as I could see, this is caused by the resolver failing to ask for
AAAA records, getting a funny reply by the windows DNS server. I've yet
to find the piece of code responsible, though.
