Radvd v1.13 includes this change..

    time: Use clock_gettime and monotonic clock

    Currently the system time is used to calculate the timeout in
    milliseconds for the poll function. This can lead to bugs as soon as the
    time of the system changes through NTP. For example starting radvd
    before NTP can lead to a 44 year jump, resulting in a poll timeout of
    10^6 seconds.

    This patch replaces all gettimeofday() usage by the better clock_gettime
    call using a monotonic clock which avoids those situations.

Please send bug reports to the mailing list.
