If you have a Linux machine with an IPv6 address, and you're using the
iptables technique described on that page, then you're going to leak.
"iptables" only applies to IPv4 traffic. You need to put in an explicit
rule using "ip6tables" to block all IPv6 traffic.

Alternatively, just disable IPv6 support on your machine.

Maybe the documentation should be updated with this information?
