[Xorp-hackers] BGP issue in test harness (xorp.ct)

I've got at least partial functionality in the bgp test harness
working in my xorp.ct tree.
I am getting a failure (with crash due to uncaught exception)
echo "TEST28 (IPV6) - Verify that routes originated by BGP reach an EBGP peer"
echo "Also verify that the nexthop is rewritten and the provided nexthop"
echo "is ignored"
coord target $HOST $PORT4
coord initialise attach peer1
coord peer1 expect packet open asnum $AS bgpid $ID holdtime $HOLDTIME \
afi 2 safi 1
coord peer1 expect packet keepalive
coord peer1 expect packet update \

It is crashing because :: isn't a unicast address. I think this is basically
the same problem I hit the other day with IPv4, and I can fix it by catching
the exception and ignoring the update. But, assuming this test case should
function...should we perhaps allow :: for a nexthop?
