Something relating to IPV6 networking is your problem but also the 
".nofail" and it's counterpart ".fail" were not added until after 0.9.6 
IIRC (could be wrong here).

Try disabling IPV6 somehow on windows.

Or better yet, try to compile a newer pulseaudio for windows :) (this is 
a joke unless you are a fairly good programmer!)
