	Oh...  Another point on the curve...  This may be a kernel issue.  The
rules are getting loaded properly.  Here's a dump of the rules from the
system in question:

[root cabra iptables]# ip6tables -L
Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination
RH-Firewall-1-INPUT  all      anywhere             anywhere

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination
RH-Firewall-1-INPUT  all      anywhere             anywhere

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination

Chain RH-Firewall-1-INPUT (2 references)
target     prot opt source               destination
ACCEPT     all      anywhere             anywhere
ACCEPT     ipv6-icmp    anywhere             anywhere
ACCEPT     ipv6-crypt    anywhere             anywhere
ACCEPT     ipv6-auth    anywhere             anywhere
ACCEPT     udp      anywhere             ff02::fb/128       udp dpt:mdns
ACCEPT     udp      anywhere             anywhere           udp dpt:ipp
ACCEPT     tcp      anywhere             anywhere           tcp dpt:ipp
ACCEPT     all      anywhere             anywhere           state RELATED,ESTABLISHED
ACCEPT     tcp      anywhere             anywhere           state NEW tcp dpt:ssh
ACCEPT     udp      anywhere             anywhere           state NEW udp dpt:netbios-ns
ACCEPT     udp      anywhere             anywhere           state NEW udp dpt:netbios-dgm
ACCEPT     tcp      anywhere             anywhere           state NEW tcp dpt:netbios-ssn
ACCEPT     tcp      anywhere             anywhere           state NEW tcp dpt:microsoft-ds
ACCEPT     tcp      anywhere             anywhere           state NEW tcp dpt:https
ACCEPT     tcp      anywhere             anywhere           state NEW tcp dpt:http
DROP       all      anywhere             anywhere

	So, apparently, ip6tables was able to set the rules (and list them from
the kernel) with state matching.  The problem doesn't appear to be a
user space problem.
