Hmmmm. Interesting. I wonder if this is specific to the RedHat kernel?
Or a problem with v6 support on Linux in general? Perhaps it could be
solved with tweaking which iptables modules get loaded. Ugh. This is why
I don't care for iptables as a firewall. Lost lots of time tracking down
bizarre corner cases due to module issues. Don't get me started on the
number of issues due to distro patching of the kernel.

I haven't used Linux for any serious networking duty for some time. Just
Cisco and pfsense. However the majority of my servers are Linux (Ubuntu
10.10/8.04) (with a couple of windows 2008 servers).
