We've had a couple of reports of X forwarding breakage related to IPv6.

One report implied that X forwarding in PuTTY broke right after we integrated the IPv6 code. Presumably the IPv6 changes have had some sort of side effect on the local network connection between PuTTY and the X server, but it isn't clear what since we haven't been able to reproduce it.

We received this report by email (<41E6F012.2040105@ressukka.net>). Details include:

Another report (<4E2CCFB2C8CC5244939D17374DC28E0003444974@ing.com>):

If anyone is able to reproduce this or shed some light on possible causes, we'd be grateful.
