[radvd-devel-l] Wildcard Interface Addresses

Woops, forgot the context:

I'm trying to enabled IPv6 for my VPN server, so ppp0 is my existing
internet connection, and ppp<other> are my vpn clients.  I want to assign
each client their own IPv6 address - /128 only as these are roaming laptops
so they don't have a network behind them anyways.

pppd is setting up the fe80::prefi, but not my global prefix.  I did a quick
test, and even if I do announce the prefix down the ppp link, my vista
clients are not using it.  Any ideas?
