And thank you for taking the time to look this over. However I think you may
have been too hasty in hitting the SEP button. :)

It's not the fact that www.arin.net has two AAAAs that I'm concerned about,
it's that I couldn't get to either of them. An update on that, if I wait a
really long time (45 seconds to a minute), 'telnet -6 2001:500:4:1::80 80'
eventually succeeds (in spite of traceroute not being able to "see past"
arin-gw1). No such luck on the other address.

If there is anything else I can do to help you debug this, please let me know.
