link-local addresses are traversing

The router at DIGITAL-CA has a link-local address of fe80::f842:142c,
not fe80::cc7b:02ec.

A traceroute from one of my IPV6 hosts (host.ipv6.pa-x.dec.com) to
v6.netc.com shows that gw.ipv6.pa-x.dec.com is reporting its address
correctly. I'll check with the engineers to see if there are
conditions under which it would behave differently, though.

% traceroute6 v6.netc.com
