	hmm, thanks for reporting.  i personally never use anything other than
	/64, and maybe that's the reason why I never see it fails...

	btw, /127 assignment cannot be used in IPv6 as all-zero host address
	(the last bit = 0 in /127 case) is reserved for subnet router anycast
	address (RFC2367).  you at least need /126 to accomodate two nodes
