Not personnaly, but in any case, MacOS X and Vista do not attempt any AAAA
querying unless a non-linklocal IPv6 address is assigned to the host.

I had reports MacOS X had an annoying bug that it would not refresh the
AAAA querying status automatically. So if you get IPv6 access at some point
in time, you need to restart the DNS resolution daemon.
