I can reproduce this with ELinks 0.11.7 on Mac OS X Lion.
However, ELinks 0.12pre1 and 0.12pre5 appear to work correctly.
Disabling IPv6 support or enabling HTTP compression does not matter.

The incompatibility is apparently not caused by bug 1013
("is_system_error() assumes errno is between 0 and 100000"),
because ELinks 0.12pre1 has that bug and works anyway.
