IPv6 DNS queries being sent on SLES servers even though disabled by configuration


We are seeing IPv6 DNS queries being sent on SLES servers.
We have disabled ipv6 module from the kernel, and are noticing this behaviour only on some applicaitons like wget, telnet

A similar issue can be found here => http://forums.novell.com/novell-prod...aaaa-ipv6.html

======
Verified that IPv6 parameter is disabled.
