Check that the parameter is properly applied, both in /proc/cmdline and
Did you also try the resolv.conf tricks I also suggested ? If one works,
it would be less invasive than disabling IPv6. However if your
resolv.conf is dynamically created by dhclient or NetworkManager, you
may need the help of resolvconf to make the setting persistent.
Forcing IPv4 is all well and good but not a workable solution on an app
