For unknown reasons, the command-line curl does come through with an
IPv4 call, while using the library directly it does not, unless I disable the
use of ares_getaddrinfo(), unless I explicitely select an interface
for it to call out on. Note that all interfaces have valid IPv4
configurations, so it ought to work no matter what.
