I added a workaround for the ISC bug in GNOME NetworkManager one and
ahalf year ago, basically we ignore whatever the DHCPv6 client tells us
and go with a prefix length of 128 always:

http://cgit.freedesktop.org/NetworkManager/NetworkManager/commit/?id=eb460b70dad82d366d35fa5703c0e79a1389e4d1

I reported the bug to ISC too, but I have heard exactly nothing back
from them.
