I noted that my upgrade of fc17 was running very slowly this morning. I was
getting only about 65-68kB download, and things were pretty slow. Since this is
a regular thing, I checked a few things, and found out that the upgrade was
going over IPv6! It was slow because my connection with a 2nd ISP for IPv6 was
for testing, and is only 768kb right now.
It looks as if yum chooses IPv6 sources when available, over IPv4. Who knew?
Yes, I confirmed with wireshark, really was using v6 for everything but

We are not out of the woods yet, but we know the direction and have
taken the first step. The steps are many, but finite in number, and if
we persevere we will reach our destination. -me, 2010
