It is not supposed to work that way.
Rather, you do NOT put the addresses into the rtadvd.conf file, but just
ifconfig the devices and let rtadvd discover the new addresses autmatically.
[Unless you want to do special magic.]
I suspect this is the way a routing daemon would inform rtadvd about address
changes, or additional prefixes, on an interface.
