Bug#678519: general: after about 1 month of uptime, routing of IPv6 packets is no longer possible, and IPv4 routing becomes slow and unpredictable. Rebooting brings all functionality back, and back to speed. so far the best way for me to discover is to try a ping6, and reboot the firewall (this machine), when ping6 from the inner network fails.

Please use (as root) "ip neigh show", and "ip route list cache" to try to
track down any weird differences between the box when it is behaving
normally, and the box when wedged.  You may want to compare it to a healthy
box on the same network segment.

You can also try to see if "ip route flush cache" and "ip neigh flush" can
unwedge the system.  After a flush, "ip neigh show" and "ip route list
cache" should return very few, if any, entries.
