IPv6 rule: 'add network' becomes 'add single host'
I tried to add a reject rule for a range of IPv6 addresses:
"Reject TCP IPv6 to type network 2a00:1450:: CIDR /32"
After I have clicked 'save' it shows me the single alias. Not a network.

- Status changed from Feedback to New
- % Done changed from 100 to 50
It's partially fixed but not 100%
If I enter 2a00:1450:: in a firewall rule as a network with a mask of /32 (which is perfectly valid as a normal prefix length on IPv6), it does show 2a00:1450::/32 on the rule list now, but when you go back into the rule to edit again, the choice has moved from Network to Single Host or Alias.

Maybe this change broke something, because I have created exactly the same rule on earlier snapshots without any problems:
Trying to add a Block rule for IPv6 ICMP traffic from "Single Host or Alias" fe80::1 always results in a Network Source with fe80::1/32 for me. I'm on the latest snapshot Fri Feb 15 15:43:49 EST 2013. Tried this with multiple browsers.
