nio channels with IPv6 on Windows XP

It seems that AsynchronousServerSocketChannel does not work with IPv6 sockets on Windows XP (the combination that invokes the TwoStack implementations).  Is this a known restriction or is it intended to work?  I can certainly understand why you might not want to support it.

I tested on b77.  My test runs on Windows 7 but fails on Windows XP.  It fails on the bind because an IPv6 address is passed to AF_INET socket.
