Package: isc-dhcp-client
Version: 4.3.1-6+deb8u2
Severity: critical
Tags: ipv6
Justification: breaks the whole system

Dear Maintainer,

Adding a "dhcp 1" (stateless DHCPv6) to my inet6 interface stanza causes
the system to fail to bring up the interface, failing with these
messages in syslog:

Aug 20 11:46:11 rctest dhclient: Can't bind to dhcp address: Cannot
assign requested address
Aug 20 11:46:11 rctest ifup[389]: Failed to bring up eth0.
