Core module fails to resolve AAAA records

I have the following section in my config file:

location ~* /get/(.*?)/(.*) {


set $upstream_uri $2;
set $upstream_host $1;

set $upstream_url http://$upstream_host/$upstream_uri;

proxy_set_header Host $upstream_host;
proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
proxy_pass $upstream_url;


Everything works just fine as long as use ipv4 enabled domain names, but when I try to access an ipv6 site through the proxy, it doesn't try to resolve AAAA and fails:
*36 could not be resolved (3: Host not found), client: ::ffff:, server: localhost, request: "GET /get/ HTTP/1.1", host: ""

In this particular situation I want to use nginx as a proxy between ipv4 only and ipv6 only networks. I tried adding a few rules statically, and it works. I mean something like this works:

proxy_set_header Host;
proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;

I was wondering whether you can try resolving an AAAA record if ipv6 is enabled, and core fails to resolve and A record.

Let me know if you need help reproducing.

Resolution: invalid
Status: newclosed

A quote from the documentation:

Resolving of names into IPv6 addresses is supported starting from version 1.5.8.

The official Ubuntu packages of 1.5.8+ are available here:
