dhclient -P -6 ppp0 does not receive dhcp-server responses

I found something weird.
I was playing around with the IPv6 side of the ethernet interface that 
is the connection to the vdsl modem, and thus carries the PPPoE 
connection, etc.
I removed IPv6 from the ethernet interface and also from the vlan 
interface over this ethernet.
After restarting pppd (?) I suddenly received responses to dhclient's 
prefix requests. (as this sequence (re)starts dhclient and then radvd)

So yes, a bit hairy but I think i got a solution now.
I will close the bug with redhat.
Thank you for thinking about this issue.

Kind regards,
