Bug#688470: netcfg infinitely tries to get a DHCPv6 reply in mixed stateless/stateful autoconfig if the DHCPv6 server does not reply

The code intends to do that. However dhcp6c double forks and it loses track
about its child because of this (after all it already exited). I bet this was
never exposed because Ubuntu uses isc-dhcp-client instead of
wide-dhcpv6-client. *sigh*

So Gasha's problem might have been the same problem in the end…

Kind regards
