From Daniel's reply I understood the above is not supposed to work
with c-ares now.

The second case somehow worked only if --ipv6 was given to curl. This has
been fixed after c-ares-1.6.0. However forcing the shared c-ares library
wasn't sufficient to make it working. curl needs to be rebuilt against newer
c-ares headers. So it had been actually my mistake to see the failure.

The mentioned test241 now works for me with c-ares, too.
