Hi Simon,

thank you for the answer.

I had never found this out on my own. I will try to disable ipv6.

What I know is that you can disable IPv6 in KDE via an environment variable

KDE_USE_IPV6="no" (SuSe)
or
KDE_NO_IPV6=TRUE   (Debian)

As the behaviour occured while using konqueror, this might be enough. Or 
should it be better to switch off IPv6 at lower level somehow? (If so, how?)

Thanks again,
Arno
