I simply disable NM. It does nothing for me that I can't do much more

As far as I can tell, NM exists to absolve the technically disinclined
from knowing anything about how connections are made. So, it can
discover new WAP options? Well, I don't need that--so I simply insure NM
isn't running in any runlevel. Haven't missed it yet.

Yes, so it seems that, while not enabled by default in previous versions of Fedora, in Fedora 13 NetworkManager replaces the former Network Administration Tool (system-config-network) while providing enhanced functionality (e.g., mobile broadband configuration).  See fedora (13) project documentation, Chapter 5. Network Configuration.

The simplest fix for the technically disinclined (or otherwise) is to disable the NetworkManager service and re-enable the old network service (which respects IPV6INIT=no).

Apparently, full support for IPv6 has been added to NetworkManager, whether you want it or not.
