> If B sends duplicates for some extended time, and A stops pinging B but starts pinging unavailable node C, A will receive the delayed responses of B. But as the sender address is not matching C, A should ignore the replies (or give a debug message). `ping6` however takes the delayed responses into account and will stop pinging when 3 responses (regardless of sender address) are receiced. If it only send 2 requests in that time, it will also print 133% success ratio...

Ahhh, so the sender address not matching is the problem?
