So it is selecting the IPv4-Mapped IPv6 Address derived from the IPv4 address (RFC 4291 section 126.96.36.199).
It sounds like the RFC 3484 tables are screwed up. The default table (from the RFC) is:
Prefix Precedence Label
::1/128 50 0 # loopback
::/0 40 1 # any IPv6 address
2002::/16 30 2 # any "normal" IPv6 address
::/96 20 3 # IPv4-Compatible IPv6 Address
::ffff:0:0/96 10 4 # IPv4-Mapped IPv6 Address
It is supposed to compare the addresses is has options on and select the one with the longest common prefix. Tell me that the name you're trying to connect to doesn't have in a AAAA record an IPv4-Mapped IPv6 Address?
