+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #812772 +++
Description of problem:
Openldap always send IPV6 queries when contacting the DNS
even when IPV6 is completely disabled on the host.
This is causing excessive traffic.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
All the openldap versions.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install openldap.
2. Disable completely the IPV6 protocol on the host.
2. Do a LDAP query using a FQDN name as server.
The openldap is sending IPV6 queries before to use IPV4 addresses:
If IPV6 is disabled, then Openldap should query only IPV4 addresses.
