Bug#854801: Network Manager, Stretch and ipv6

Control: severity 854801 serious
Control: reassign 854801 netcfg


This is https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=854801

Since this issue is now cropping up regularly, I'd say it's something
which needs to be fixed for stretch, thus marking the bug as RC.

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
