Problems switching from IPv4 to IPv6 on same URL

This is the problem description:
We send a request to while on an IPv4 address.
After we get the response we send a new request to the same url but this time on an IPv6 address.

cURL resolves the URL as an IPv6 address but it tries to reuse the same
socket from the first request. We get a Network Error/Timeout.

I'm still getting more details about this issue, but I want to write this
first email to see if there is someone experiencing similar behaviors.
