Indeed - and my tweaks involve ensuring that it's getting exactly 5v0. I
think it was getting slightly more - and so why I suspect overheating
under load.

But I still can't find anything about what I need. I have this (default
from package install)

# ls -l /etc/rc.d/S50radvd 
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root            15 Nov  2 08:09 /etc/rc.d/S50radvd -> ../init.d/radvd

and radvd starts as expected when I run
/etc/init.d/radvd start

But radvd does not start on boot but I can find no clue as to where the
problem might be.

It's not a major issue but it's annoying. I can't even find
documentation to tell me if these init scripts ought to work. There's
nothing in the log.
