I suspect it may well be approximately the same fraction of systems, though it may take longer to notice/resolve the IPv6 issues than the IPv4 ones.

At the last RIPE i had some troubles with my IPv4 while my IPv6 worked fine.  Folks internally grumbled about fixing IPv6 hosts because those with IPv6 are in the minority, but that is a diminishing view and honestly people who keep repeating that will slowly undercut themselves out of relevance.
