Subject: no ipv6 support
Trying to log in with an openid that is only accessible by ipv6 fails. I tried using Net::INET6Glue to work around perl's known ipv6 problems, but it was not enough to get this module to work. Although it did get LWP working to the point that it could download the openid provider's page, this module must do something that defeats Net::INET6Glue.

I bet LWPx::ParanoidAgent is defeating the INET6Glue module. It implements its own DNS lookups and specifically looks for "A" records, so won't see "AAAA" records and thus this case will look to Net::OpenID::Consumer like the hostname was invalid. This should really be fixed inside LWPx::ParanoidAgent, making it aware of "AAAA" records.

I can confirm that's it. -- see shy jo

Message body not shown because it is not plain text.

since there seems to be consensus that the problem is in LWPx::ParanoidAgent and it's not something we can fix in our part of the world, I'm going to close this. thanks for the report.
