Default Ipv6 addr with Vlan-Id - unable to ping neighbour

Hi All,
** If I have a vlan-Id on an interface with an ipv6 address, then I am unable to ping a real router.
The problem is that the Neighbour Solicitation originated from the Centos machine is missing the Vlan-Id in the packet.
Therefore a real router will drop such a packet.
I have tried this with Centos 4.7 and with Centos 5.5 with the same result.



If I originate the first Neighbour Solicitation from the Router (which contains the Vlan-Id), then Linux learns the Mac address correctly and bidirectional ping works.
This is a workaround that I am using at the moment, but I would like to avoid doing this all the time (especially when there is a timeout of the neighbour information).


This problem does not exist for Ipv4 (i.e. ARP packets originated from Centos contain the Vlan-Id as expected).


Here is my topology.
