omshell resume on DHCPv6 client turns on DHCPv4??

Using 4.1.1 I tried using the control object to pause and resume the 
DHCPv6 client. But instead it attempts DHCPv4 DISCOVER.

Is this a known problem? Or am I doing something wrong?

$ cat dhclient6.conf
omapi port 7912;
$ sudo ./client/dhclient -d -6 -cf ./dhclient6.conf -sf 
client/scripts/linux eth0 &

<all normal DHCPv6 processing here...>

$ ./dhcpctl/omshell
 > port 7912
 > connect
obj: <null>
 > new control
obj: control
 > open
obj: control
state = 00:00:00:00
 > set state = 4
obj: control
state = 4
 > update
DHCPDISCOVER on eth0 to port 547 interval 5
send_packet: Invalid argument
obj: control
state = 4

<later more normal DHCPv6 processing and more failing DHCPv4 processing
