Broken IPv6 dhcp clients

I recall many years ago we struck a number of broken IPv4 dhcp implementations, Apple Laserwriter IIs and Brother 630 printers coming to mind.

It would appear that we may have similar things happening in the IPv6 world.  I have an HP MFD laser printer that is requesting a lease every few seconds.  It seems to ignore the lease it is receiving (same each time) and it simply asking again :-(

Has anyone else seen anything like this ?
