Well, for me it was ages since i used ipv6... So i can't really help. I
was more hoping for someone in the same position or someone who'd seen
something simular and solved it.

From what i gather, i have done nothing wrong and a forward shouldn't
time out. Ie, if it works it should keep working.

It would be really interesting to see what the other end of a ipv6
tunnel sees when it pings, but i don't have the means to test that
currently.
