[leafnode-list] IPv6 upstream - how?

Hi all,

I have been running leafnode with lots of pleasure on my home machine.
Today I've tried to switch to an IPv6 NNTP server, but it seems like
fetchnews will not connect. As you see in the pasted text, the
NNTPserver is fine but I can connect to it.

To rule out a problem with the resolver I tried the following lines in
	server = newszilla6.xs4all.nl
	server = 2001:888:0:4::119
	server = [2001:888:0:4::119]

Any pointers or suggestions would be nice!

The version is leafnode "1.9.41rel" from the FreeBSD ports collection.
The FreeBSD port configures leafnode with --with-ipv6 as seen in

rez:~# fetchnews -v
