This makes sense, thanks! I wonder, why it doesn't happen on Suse, though. ipv6 
is also running there, but no such error message.

Add "alias net-pf-10 off" to modprobe.conf and reboot? Do I need to do anything 
What do you mean with "zero conf stuff"? That is obviously something I'm not 
aware of.

Actually, I edit all my config files on my workstation and then transfer the 
file to the server machine it belongs to. I maintain a mirrored directory 
structure of all our machines with the most relevant config files and all 
changed files locally and also carry them around on my laptop. It's so much 
easier for comparing configuration and in case you need a fast backup, yes :-)
