Yes, I think your analysis is correct, but the problem is not on my
end. I can do IPv6 FTP to, e.g., ftp2.no.netbsd.org without any
problems. A small tcpdump investigation shows that there is indeed
loss of full-size packets from ftp.netbsd.org. I see the same thing
from ftp.kame.net (in Japan), but Norway is OK. I guess the IPv6
Internet isn't really ready for prime time yet...
