Ping LXC over ipv4

Hello everyone.

All of a sudden I'm having trouble resolving LXC hostnames. I think it started after the proxmox update. Now, if I ping LXC by hostname, it resolves as ipv6, but it doesn't ping with the ipv4 flag (-4). If I disable ipv6 in LXC, LXC will usually ping over ipv4.

What needs to be changed so that LXC pings normally with ipv6 and ipv4 enabled.
