 | >Description:
 | Something isn't treating ipv6 routes right. I noticed that netstat gets the netmasks right, but route doesn't. This bug also affects the Bird Internet Routing Daemon and probably any other program that reads the routes from the kernel routing table in the same way they both do. I'm not sure if this counts as a kernel bug for breaking the interface route uses or a userland program problem for not acting the way netstat does.
 The problem is that the formatting is done suboptimally in /sbin/route.
 The information is there and correct in the kernel.
