OK, it is rather new, but it seems this development is out already in testing.


You install this version with:

yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing NetworkManager

I can confirm that it doesn't add the hostname to the IPv6 loopback
line anymore. Maybe you still have to delete it, but NM won't put it
back. This does seem to be a fix for the condition that afflicted
liblo's behaviour [1].

IPv6 loopback line in /etc/hosts must be something like:

::1             localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6
