Ok, that explains it quite well.

So I'll have a look at passing through the IPv6 stuff without hosing

I just can't promise when I wil do it since I'm travelling at lot in
November and my kFreeBSD box is no mobile computer. (And I try to not
fiddle around with network remotely. :-)

Thanks for the guidance.

# mount
/dev/ad0s1a on / (ufs, local)
devfs on /dev (devfs, local)
linprocfs on /proc (linprocfs, local)
linsysfs on /sys (linsysfs, local)
fdescfs on /dev/fd (fdescfs)
tmpfs on /lib/init/rw (tmpfs, local, nosuid)

(The output is from the running 7.2, but it shouldn't differ a lot
from the output under 8.0.)

I will try.

Full ack, especially for debugging other bugs. :-)

Ah, ok. I probably can't help a lot here except testing or bug
reporting. (I'm already happy if I manage to fix normal application
for kFreeBSD. :-)
