Well the reason for the incompatibility is the simple fact that 
the Linux server is a bit behind the rest of the servers out there
when it comes to this particular type of v4 support... 

Note, I've been pushing kernel patches to for over a year now (which are 
in currently in the F-12) which would bring the server up to speed in 
this area... but they gained any priority with the maintainer... 
until recently...
