(usagi-users 04054) ping6 is sent out from wrong interface



Hi all,

I configured the IPv6 global address for two interfaces,
and sent the ping with "-I <eth1 address>" to the "ff02::1".

    # ifconfig eth0 add 2001:2c0:418:1::2/64
    # ifconfig eth1 add 2001:2c0:418:2::2/64
    # ping6 -I2001:2c0:418:2::2 ff02::1

    # /usr/sbin/tcpdump -ieth1 icmp6 -v -e
    tcpdump: listening on eth1, link-type EN10MB (Ethernet), capture size 96 bytes
    0 packets captured
    0 packets received by filter
    0 packets dropped by kernel

The ping packets weren't sent from "eth1",
so I captured the packets on the "eth0" by tcpdump.

    # /usr/sbin/tcpdump -ieth0 icmp6 -v -e
    tcpdump: listening on eth0, link-type EN10MB (Ethernet), capture size 96 bytes

The ping packets were sent out from "eth0"(00:19:d1:19:23:af),
but IPv6 address was "eth1"(2001:2c0:418:2::2).
Why is interface "eth0".  Isn't it bug ?

The following is additional information.
