Yes I absolutely do think it's better to let it soak somewhere than
to repeat the reason why this patch is necessary in the first place.

This patch is necessary because Eric already screwed up trying to fix
this neigh dirctory under ipv6 once, and he got it wrong.

That patch looked correct and straightforward.

Yet it introduced the bug you're seeing.

Given that consideration, are you still holding steady to your
opinion wise guy? :-)
