Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
A programming error caused an internal array of nameservers to only be partially initialized when /etc/resolv.conf contained IPV6 nameservers. Depending on the exact contents of a nearby structure, this could cause applications to fault. The programming error has been fixed restoring proper behaviour with IPV6 nameservers listed in /etc/resolv.conf.
