it works for me with collectd 4.8 built from Git linked against liboping
1.3.4-1 from Debian Testing.

Works too, same setup as above:

[2010-03-09 17:27:43] uc_update: leeloo.octo.cx/ping/ping-wilma.octo.it: ds[0] = 0.159300

There's an A record for that host, too. I verified that it is using the
AAAA record using tcpdump.

Can you please provide the exact versions you are using? And the
relevant parts of the collectd configuration might be useful, too.
