Interesting that it worked for you.  I had a quick test this morning on my
IPv4-only system and get a lot of  "Windows socket error #10014" errors, so
most protocols wouldn't connect, not on XMPP though.  From MSDN:
"10014 - WSAEFAULT - Bad address. The system detected an invalid pointer
address in attempting to use a pointer argument of a call. This error
occurs if an application passes an invalid pointer value, or if the length
of the buffer is too small. For instance, if the length of an argument,
which is a sockaddr structure, is smaller than the sizeof(SOCKADDR)."
