e1000g is one of the drivers with known (and long-standing) hardware
checksum issues.  Did you see the e1000g.conf entries I suggested?

The entry you added should certainly do the job.  I don't know why it
doesn't, and I've been out of touch with the NWAM folks for a long time,
so I don't know the current status of it.  (Are you even using NWAM?)

You can certainly manually remove those entries:

	ifconfig e1000g0:1 inet6 unplumb
	ifconfig e1000g0 inet6 unplumb

I'd do that and then recycle the 'nwam' service to see if it comes back.
 If it does, then that sounds like a bug (of some sort) with nwamd.  If
it doesn't, then it's possible that there's a corner case here (new
entries in llp) that nwamd doesn't handle too well.
