Just entered a bug on bugzilla with a level 10 log and a
wireshark capture from the XP client.

The wireshark capture was run on a non-ipv6 capable client.
Do you want me to repeat it for an ipv6 capable client?

I doubt there is difference, as there seems to be no
ipv6 smb traffic at all, just ipv6 ldap traffic.

What I do see is that smbd handles ipv4 smb connections on ipv6 sockets.
I know a lot of other ipv6 capable applications use ipv4 sockets for ipv4
connections, supposedly because of problems using ipv6 sockets for
everything, particularly on Linux.
