This is fixed in at least dhcpv6-1.0.14 and higher, which are in rawhide.  F-8 has a very very old 
release of this software.

Some backstory...
I recently took over the dhcpv6 project.  It had been abandoned upstream and we (Red Hat and others) 
have been aggressively working on it since November of 2007 to comply with all RFCs and pass all TAHI 
tests.  F-8 has the last upstream release before I took over the project.  I have resurrected the project 

I'd love it if you could work with the latest upstream release and see how that's working in your 
environment.  I have been participating in IETF interoperability test session with this software to see 
how it works against other vendors' implementations.  So far the results have been more positive than I 
would have thought.  F-9 will have the latest upstream release of dhcpv6 in it.  If you'd like to see it in 
F-8 instead, let me know and I'll push out an update package for F-8.
