IPv6 tunneling/routing problem with FreeBSD 6.2-PRERELEASE

After recently upgrading my laptop to FreeBSD 6.2-PRERELEASE, health I noticed that my IPv6 support became broken. I connect to Freenet6 over IPv4 using their tspc client which does all of the negotiations and configures the tunnel using gif or tun interface. It also sets up the appropriate routing table. I noticed that the default route was properly (netstat -rn) but any time I tried to ping something, even if it is the next hop, I would get a No route to host error from sendmsg. After some investigation, I found a post from John Hay specifying that it was a known problem and that it is being worked upon with a suggested work around. I guess 6.1-RELEASE will have to do.
