JDK1.4beta is a new releases, and works with all the recent Linux
kernels (JavaSoft recommends
a kernel >2.4.2, which is where IPv6 is not marked expermental anymore).
I've another theoriy on why the JDK uses old addresses: I'm pretty sure
the JDK has support
for both addresses, and has a mean to probe the kernel to find which one
is supported (maybee
based on the kernel version). Because the Linux emulation is incomplete,
the JDK make the
wrong guess and uses the older addresses.
Anyway, it's just a guess, and I will dig a little bit further on this
issue later this month,
when I come back from vacations.
