Description (partial)

The Outbound IPv6 Access-list intermittently misclassifies and drops egress ESP traffic. This happens immediately after encryption and while parsing the egress ipv6 traffic filter.

The dropped ESP packet is misclassified using its original IP Protocol ID (pre-encryption), e.g. an encrypted ICMP packet is checked against ICMP ACL entries (IP Protocol 1) or an encrypted TCP or UDP are checked against their respective protocol number entries. If no specific protocol ACL entries exist the 
encrypted packet will be checked against generic IP ACL rules. The result for all these egress ACL checks
will be an IPv6 Access-List Drop.
