These redirects look kind of odd. IPv6 ICMP redirects are only
supposed to redirect you to a link local address, but these seem
to be redirecting to a global address. When I've run into this
problem before, it has been because I've created a (more specific)
route pointing at a global address. Replacing that with a link local
address has fixed the problem.
