Ok, it took some time, but I've got this issue fixed. I have prepared a 
snapshot. You can download it here:

Right now server is able to handle requests sent via 2 relays and properly 
generates answer. Also relays properly handle traffic from other relays.

As for homogenous environment (e.g. non-dibber DHCPv6 server + dibbler 
relay + dibbler clients) - the main cause of problem was that dibbler 
relay always placed interface-id option at the end of the message.
Right now I have implemented new configuration parameter, so sysadmin can 
define, where interface-id option should be placed. Unofortunately, that 
is not documented yet.

Please let me know if that snapshot works for you or not.

Ok, I hope that one is fixed. The next thing is a prefix delegation 
problem reported on the dibbler-devel.
