I'm not using konqueror, and I'm not sure konqueror is using
getaddrinfo(3) with AF_UNSPEC.  However, I confirmed that our
getaddrinfo(3) doesn't issue bogus query on my 6.1-RC box.  The
following sequence is from our getaddrinfo(3) with AF_UNSPEC:

00:58:23.041513 IP >  32939+ A? (37)
00:58:23.047501 IP >  32939 1/5/5 A (242)
00:58:23.047692 IP >  32940+ AAAA? (37)
00:58:23.054429 IP >  32940 0/1/0 (96)
