Did you read the bug?  Java 1.4.2+ *always* uses IPv6 on Linux, unless
you tell it not to.  AFAIK, all recent Linux distributions ship with
IPv6 turned on, so it's present even if there isn't an external IPv6
network.

As far as ident-over-TCP, it's the only way to do it with JDBC.  For my
money, it beats the heck out of storing your database password in your
web application!
