I setup a test environment using 3.3rc5-1 for the crypto problem and
was unable to get it to recur.

I've put some more info on the dibbler bug on the related bug, and
confirmed there's a problem (that takes at least a few hours to occur)

(summary, if you aren't using dhcpv6, turn dibbler off. Easiest way to
do that is rename the /etc/dibbler/client.conf file to something else)
