(ITS#5307) www.openldap.org doesn't respond to Ipv6 requests

www.openldap.org has a ipv6 dns record, unfortunately the server does not
respond on that address.  Luckily, or is that unluckily, I can still access your
page via Internet Explorer which falls back to IPv4 if the server doesn't
respond.  I'm running Opera, which doesn't fall back to Ipv4 addresses.  While
this may not affect many customers, it would be nice to have the native support
on the server or remove the entry from DNS if it's not actually responding to
the IPv6 address.

Thank you for your time.


ps.  Here's a couple of command prompt captures of my testing
