Agreed.  That IP address came out of a client_subnet2.xml file and
should have been something like 2404:130:1:f100::f104:2 (I'm not sure
what summarisation is happening for IPv6 addresses).

But subnets in IPv6 don't work quite the same as IPv4.  They should
probably be truncated to /48s as being a standard site allocation, what
do you think?

Thank you for your work!
