6-STABLE and IPv6/Quagga

Greetings - 

I'm curious.. how many folks out there actually use FreeBSD 6-STABLE as
an IPv6 firewall, with dynamic routing?

I only pose the question, because it seems there have been (and still
are) a few fairly major bugs that affect this certain type of setup:

http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=kern/105966 [solved, probably
a dup anyway]
http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=kern/104569 [?]

When I say IPv6 firewall with dynamic routing, it usually means the
following setup:

* FreeBSD 6.x w/pf
* Quagga w/ospf6d, possibly ospfd, too
* Multiple gif/tun and Ethernet interfaces

Granted, most of these bugs involve the Quagga routing daemons, but
shouldn't cause OS panicks.

I still have a couple boxes sticking with 5.4-RELEASE, because of these
issues.  It'd be nice to move them to 6.x.

Thoughts?  If the suggestion is to avoid Quagga, are there other
recommended alternatives that implement OSPFv2/3?

Happy Holidays :-)

- Mark
