I have just run a test with today's daily netinst
dated 01-Oct-2012 00:11) with the same setup (IPv6-only network,
radvd announces prefix and RDNSS, AdvOtherConfigFlag is "on").

When the DHCPv6 server does not respond, dhcp6c still loops
seemingly forever (I have killed the process after 15 minutes).
