NM doesn't clean up IPv6 addresses/routes after disconnecting connections
Last modified: 2010-05-03 06:11:48 EDT
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect to a network
2. Disconnect from the network
The interface shows any IPv6 addresses and possibly routes, still.
The interface should have no addresses configured and an empty routing table.
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.
