It actually got fixed earlier today, sometime after SM's message. 

Something very nasty happened with interface route caching because of the 
described config issue earlier;
experimenting on unexpected issues on a remote box has to be done
carefully, and people are busy / travelling / daytimejob.
it was looked at earlier but this was a non-trivial thing to debug - 
isn't it always?

But yeah, I'm happy to report that it got resolved.
If you're upgrading a FreeBSD box from 8.x to 9.x, please do check
the (changed) IPv6 syntax in /etc/rc.conf and update before you
bring up the new kernel.

Thanks for bringing up this (operational, non goal-setting) issue,

Geert Jan
