I just built and am running a shiny new kernel and am encountering a strange issue:

#ping host.domain.com
PING host.domain.com ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from host.domain.com ( icmp_seq=1 ttl=61 time=0.281 ms
64 bytes from host.domain.com ( icmp_seq=2 ttl=61 time=0.298 ms
--- spark.labs.tvworks.com ping statistics ---
2 packets transmitted, 2 received, 0% packet loss, time 2999ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 0.251/0.309/0.408/0.061 ms

Works fine but

#ssh host.domain.com


# ssh: host.domain.com: Name or service not known

hmmmm....I searched around and found out that the culprit may be ipv6. So I try:

#ssh -4 host.domain.com

and hooray....it works (forces ssh to use ipv4)

Here's the problem:

I have rebuilt my kernel and specifically excluded ipv6 (I'm not even building it as a module).

Yet, the same behaviour persists!!! Any help on how to fix this???

Also it seems any TCP application fails this way (wget, telnet, ftp etc.)

Please Help!
