Before I forget, I can't find the key that you signed this message with
on any key servers; FYI.

There have been numerous changes to IPv6 related stuff, both in the code
and in the rc.d configuration. Please make sure that your kernel, world,
AND /etc are all up to date.

I'm sorry to hear that you're having trouble.

FYI, this is now (basically) a no-op, you should be able to remove it

Do this: ifconfig gif0 -ifdisabled
That should fix the problem with the tunnel. If it does, try changing
ifconfig_gif0 to ifconfig_gif0_ipv6 in rc.conf and let me know if that
fixes it for you.

That was my fault, I just committed the fix in r207592. Sorry for the
... and that's just a little bit of history repeating.
