again, the point with that example was that their setup was broken
from the very beginning but for one reason or another worked in
conjunction with the original configuration on your side.  As soon as
you do something to your configuration, their setup blows up in their
face and they *perceive* your change as the cause of your
problem---after all, they haven't changed anything.  

It doesn't *have* to be the cause to make you lose business and slow
down the entire move towards IPv6, this is all about perception from
the customer's perspective.
