Good to know.

Can this be circumvented by telling the Operating system to not use IPv6? - if thats even possible easily.

Reminds me a bit of my first tries to tunnel HTTP traffic through putty. After checking with Wireshark wether the tunnel really hides everything, i learned that you have to configure

network.proxy.socks_remote_dns = TRUE

to make Firefox (and other Mozilla based browsers as well i guess) send DNS requests via the SSH Tunnel as well. Otherwise your DNS requests stay local and can be eavesdropped.
