There have been numerous IPV6 & resolver changes in the FC2 glibc, which
will never appear in the one provided with RHL9. For this reason, it's
not really valuable testing unless the problem is also reproducable
under the FC2 glibc. Upgrading the kernel alone will find lots of
little corner cases like this.
