Hi Marco,

Thanks for running a relay / bridge.

Please paste your entire torrc (without any sensitive data of course).
We have some slight misbehavior for the IPv6 auto discovery.

Along with the torrc please state if you have IPv6 of any kind to that 
box and if yes which kind (tunnel, native, etc.).

Also, you might use `ORPort 9001 IPv4Only` in torrc without any other 
modifications besides this and see if the error still occurs.
