Netgroup support of ipv6 in Solaris/Linux

So far, it appears that ipv6 breaks netgroups in both Solaris and Linux. Has anyone run into this or have a solution?

Basically if two machines both have IPv6 addresses even with fully resolvable inverse addresses, tools that depend on netgroups fail. Disabling ipv6 on either of the machine resolves the problem.

Any ideas?
