Description of problem:
init.ipv6-global either consumes all cpu & half of system memory or segfaults
with ipv6 enabled.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.If system is already running with networking enabled, /etc/init.d/network stop
will cause init.ipv6-global to use all of a CPU and roughly 200MB of RAM until
2. This usually results in a hang then segfault during boot.
Network doesn't go down or system hangs.
Network starts/stops/restarts normally.
setting NETWORKING_IPV6=no in /etc/sysconfig/network gets around the problem and
makes the system usable.
It looks like that when we call 'init.ipv6-global stop pre' from
/etc/init.d/network we get stuck in an infinite loop. you can also duplicate the
same behavior by calling init.ipv6-global from the command line.
