Default Bug#407217: not just on thecus devices...

I seem to have exactly the same issue on a normal PC

*motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-MA78GPM-DS2H

*lspci reports
02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.
RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 02)

* kernel messages:
[ 1.331851] r8169 Gigabit Ethernet driver 2.2LK-NAPI loaded
[ 1.331851] eth0: RTL8168c/8111c at 0xffffc2000062c000,
00:1f:d0:9b:88:5d, XID 3c4000c0 IRQ 1278
[ 20.968195] r8169: eth0: link up
[ 20.970312] r8169: eth0: link up
[ 31.939540] eth0: no IPv6 routers present

* kernel is linux-image-2.6.26-1-amd64 2.6.26-11 (current lenny kernel)

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??
