[CentOS] RADVD address timeouts

I am using RADVD to assign IPv6 addresses.  It works for 'static' devices.

I want it to work for devices that move to different networks without 
having to restart the network on those devices.  So if I have a notebook 
on network Lab1 getting prefix 2607:7:4:1::64 and moves to network Lab2 
where RADVD advertises prefix 2607:7:4:2::/64, I want the host to switch 
to the new address.  This is NOT for MobileIP.

Right now I get the new global address, but the old address never goes 
away.  I have tried setting AdvPreferredLifetime, but that has not helped.
