I configured BIND9 with a forwarder having an IPv6 compatible IPv4 address.
named doesn't complain at start time about it, the forwarder is accepted. At
working time when named is looking for a forwarder to be used, it ignores
it, on syslog there is the following message: "ignoring IPv6 compatibility
IPV4 address: ...".

Does somebody know why those kind of addresses are ignored, is there some
problem on use them ? 
In this case why are they accepted at first and later ignored ?
