Maybe IPv6 Routing Bug in 2.4.13 (::/0 doesnt forward)

Hi,

I found something looking like a bug in 2.4.13 IPv6 networking code. When I
create a default route (0::0/0), my Linux router itself can ping6 internet,
but it replys with "destination unreachable" when another host from lan
tries to ping6 internet with this router as gateway set. When setting a
3ffe::0/16 route, all works fine. I don't know about patches or bugfixes for
this problem, and I don't know where to post it, so I posted it here.

My System:    2.4.13 (sorry, but I cannot update too often), patched with
IPv4 personality patch, Cx486DX4, 32 MB RAM, DSL connection over 3c509 nic,
ne2k lan
IPv6:    tunnel from freenet6 (sit); home network native IPv6
(3ffe:b80:4c3::/48)

I am interested - why are you not using the USAGI patches?
