Symptoms are consistent with broken multicast; it doesn't autoconfigure
ipv6 addresses and claims there is no router present, and manually
configuring the ipv6 address allows the computer to connect out to other
ipv6 machines, but if it has been idle on the network for a while, other
machines can't connect to it (but can connect on ipv4) presumably
because it doesn't hear the neighbour solicitation requests.
Setting allmulti on the interface seems to solve it for now, so I've
just got that as a post-up in /etc/network/interfaces, but *ick*.
Is this ever going to be fixed??
