Is fetch -6 supposed to work?

It seems to me that fetch(1) cannot actually fetch files over a v6
connection. For example, the following works:
fetch -s -P -6
But remove the -s and try to fetch the file and it hangs until it times out:
xchat-2.6.0.tar.bz2 0% of 778 kB 0 Bps
fetch: transfer timed out
fetch: xchat-2.6.0.tar.bz2 appears to be truncated: 0/796768 bytes
tcpdump on that interface shows no packets flowing between my host and the
remote host while it hangs.
So, is this supposed to work? Any comments or suggestions? I should also
note that surfing IPv6 sites with my web browser works fine.
