Generally 'routers' cannot use ipv6 default routes.  When they (those
wacky kernel people) mean routers, I think they mean a host with more
than one interface.

You're not the first person to get caught by this, as it says at

 Default routes bounce packets. Having a default route in Linux for IPv6
 can often lead to severe hair loss as you tear whatever is remaining
 out. For reasons best left to the kernel hackers, using default routes
 just doesn't work right (ok you may be lucky). Use 2000::0/3 instead. 

Very annoying and it gives very wierd results.
