Hmm. I think you have mischaracterized the situation, because the
IDENT protocol doesn't actually mention IP addresses at all --- just
port numbers. It's up to Postgres to connect back to the same IP
address that the connection came from, and AFAIK we do that correctly
for IPv6 addresses.
This report could indicate a bug in our handling of the case, or it
could indicate a configuration error on the part of the OP, or it could
be that his ident daemon isn't handling the case correctly. There's
not enough info to tell. It would be useful to see the postmaster log
output when the connection is rejected.
