Indeed.  There are hard-to-diagnose problems there, and it seems to
get better while snooping ... but only sometimes, and temporarily, and
I'm not at all sure why that's so.  It appears to be driver-specific
problem.

Also disappointing was to discover that GNOME's pidgin doesn't do IPv6
at all on OpenSolaris, so telling others of the basic success was
harder than necessary.

On the plus side, and until my batteries gave out, everything that was
reachable via IPv6 (including browsing my home web server) just
worked.  Too bad so little is in fact reachable.  :-/

It was a good experiment, and far more successful than the
simultaneous power outage experiment.
