Try radvd 0.9.1 and see if it fixes your problem.  This issue may be 
related to timers.  Other possibility is that the interface goes down 
and comes back up (and then radvd ceases advertising on that 
interface, sending SIGHUP helps).  This has been fixed in CVS HEAD, 
but there has been no official release.  You may test if 
http://www.netcore.fi/pekkas/linux/radvd-1.0rc1.tar.gz works for you.
