I would guess that this is some kind of default behaviour, I have same 
bridge config and my
wlan0 and br0 have IPv6 identical too. I did nothing to set any of them 
AFAIK. I have Mandrake
10.0, 2.6.3-14 kernel, hostap 0.2.4. Bridge is running fine, but I don?t 
use 802.1x (anyway it looks
like this is not the problem).
