I haven't done extensive testing. I have just tried to divide a /64 into 
smaller subnets and to run Debian and Windows on it (as Matthew Petach 
did with his FreeBSD). I think I have tried /112 or /120. Debian was 
mostly fine, just one torrent or newsgroups client couldn't do v6 (can't 
recall which one), with Windows it was a different story and basically 
nothing really worked.

It was some time ago and I haven't tried Windows 7 SP1, maybe it has 
been fixed till now. Does anyone have Windows with IPv6 and netmask > /64?
