This is correct. There was a problem in Opera for users who had both IPv6  
and IPv4 connections on *nix systems, for which we needed an immediate  
solution, because URLs that were reachable through both IPv4 and IPv6 were  
no longer working in Opera. We are aware of current problems with IPv6  
addresses in Opera 10.10 (which were a result of the fix for that), and  
this will be fixed ASAP.
