Windows Vista / 7 - pure IPv6 (NATPT)

Replying to myself here, have some more data.

I have a vanilla install of Windows 7 Enterprise.  If I ping something, 
with the following command:

c:\> ping

It fails (DNS).  If I immediately run the command again - it works (using 
the NATPT prefix AAAA record).  My next step is to get a SPAN port going 
and look at the query in real time.

On linux, this works immediately / consistently.
