You're using ping6 from iputils-ping?  I maintain that package, and use
it on a number of sparc systems.  I do quite a bit of IPv6 stuff on
these machines, using one as a tunnel gateway and another as a
dual-stack web server.  Never have I seen any crashes related to IPv6 or
ICMPv6 or ping6 or any related code.

If you want, I can send you an image of one of the kernels that I use on
my Ultra1s.  I *know* they do IPv6.  It would be interesting to see if
they have problems on your machines.
