some mirrors of opensuse-repos seem to be broken

I know you are not the support of opensuse, and I don't ask how to 
disable IPv6. (I know it.)
But in the last two weeks I observe strange slow speeds to 
opensuse-repos via IPv6.
Unfortunately the tool zypper connects some servers in parallel, so I 
don't know which is the problematic one.

If you are administrating a mirror at a university, isp, ....
please check your IPv6-interfaces/firewalls.

I have the problem from two different native locations. (dfn, dtag)

"google" shows the problem isn't new, but at the moment I think it is 
very bad.

Thanks for the attention.


PS: via IPv4 zypper runs fast, so I think the servers are not overloaded
