Hey all,

I've found that the IPv6 state matching is non-functional in FC6.

Oh, and by the way, ip6tables state matching is nonfunctional, period; not just in Fedora. The Netfilter team hasn't yet implemented state matching in ip6tables.

	Strange that it accepts the -m state option to ip6tables then.  There
is certainly an libip6t_state.so in /lib/iptables.  If it hasn't been
implemented, then what's in that friggen library?

I retract my earlier assertion that state matching is nonfunctional.

[root osprey iptables]# strings /lib64/iptables/libip6t_state.so | grep state
--state
You must specify `--state'
Bad state `%s'
state
state v%s options:
 [!] --state [INVALID|ESTABLISHED|NEW|RELATED|UNTRACKED][,...]
state

Now to find out why it doesn't work in rawhide...
