I experienced similar with 13.1. It worked with earlier versions, but
not now. Per Jensen provided a fix. I added the following to my /etc/init.d/afterlocal file:

Hehe, hardly a fix - IPv6 privacy extensions have been enabled by default since around 12.x, see e.g. bug#678066.
Yes, I know they've been around for a while. Our point is they're now failing and requiring a work around.
Well, the default works just fine on my systems and I suspect it does (initially) on yours too. I think maybe the default is being overridden or fiddled with by something else, maybe by Network Manager. (which I don't use). Just a hunch.
