Description Scott Schmit 2010-05-02 21:03:22 UTC
Description of problem:
When I connect to a connection with IPv6 addresses, and then disconnect it, addresses and sometimes routes are left behind.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect to a network
2. Disconnect from the network
Actual results:
The interface shows any IPv6 addresses and possibly routes, still.

Expected results:
The interface should have no addresses configured and an empty routing table.

Additional info:
Exactly how much is left over depends on the configuration of the connection.
With RA+RDNSS (and 6to4 tunnel) & wireless, when I connect with auto/ignore and disconnect, I have all my IPv6 addresses left over, and all my routes (including the default route). If I connect to the same network with auto/auto, only the link-local address is left, and I have no routes.

When I connected & disconnected with ethernet, I got the same behavior.

I can't seem to reproduce with latest git; but I've added more debugging information (use --log-level=debug) that could help us track this down if you can reproduce the issue.
