That's very high on my list of suspects. I've had the crash when using
two different interfaces, ath0 and ppp0. The ppp0 instance doesn't
support v6; in fact, when I fire up ntpd after starting that link, I get
bind() fd 12, family 24, port 123, addr fe80::211:25ff:fe43:e8a4, in6_is_addr_multicast=0 flags=0 fails: Can't assign requested address
My filter rules are very simple, too; no NAT, no proxies, just blocking a few ports.
