ssh + IPV6 + bridge => connection freezes

	If IPV6 is enabled on a box and a bridge interface is enabled on
the same interface then any ssh connection to the box using the IPv6
address will freeze after a little activity (30 seconds of typing random
commands seems to be enough), bringing the bridge down with ifconfig will
restore activity to the ssh sessions (left alone they time out). I have seen
this with both 32 and 64 bit systems using up to date master code.

	I'm also not sure that it's appropriate for a bridge interface to
have an IPv6 link local address - perhaps this is connected.
