[Dibbler] Munging address for ddns record

	I'm struggling away trying to understand ipv6 and all that.  I thought I had
ddns working using dibbler-server (Dibbler - a portable DHCPv6, version 0.8.2
on Debian wheezy GNU/linux amd64).

What I find is dibbler wants to change the client address before updating dns.
 It does this by adding a some trailing bytes ending in 1.

>From this:

2013.03.24 19:26:28 Server Notice    FQDN: Attempting to clean up AAAA and PTR
record in DNS Server ::1, IP = 2a02:1234:1234:1234::46d4 and
FQDN=malfoy.lingbrae                                                         \

to this:

2013.03.24 19:26:28 Server Debug     DDNS: Performing DNS Cleanup: Only AAAA

2013.03.24 19:26:28 Server Debug     DDNS: AAAA record
created:malfoy.lingbrae. -> 2a02:1234:1234:1234::46d4::1

If I modify the address to 2a02:1234:1234:1234:1:2:3:46d2 (so there's no ::
zeros then dibbler-server throws a PException.

So far as I can tell the configuration is good.  A similar config, same subnet
and address range, with dhcpd works OK.

What could I be doing wrong?
