no IPv6 peers connecting to my node

getnetworkinfo says IPv6 is working on my node:

{
"name" : "ipv6",
"limited" : false,
"reachable" : true,
"proxy" : "127.0.0.1:9050"
}

Yet why don't I get any IPv6 peers connecting to my node? Sometimes I get many connecting to it, but right now I have only IPv4 peers.

Does your proxy endpoint support IPv6? – Anonymous – 2015-07-02T04:08:58.993

@Bitcoin: I don't know why it even says IPv6 is using a proxy. I don't want it to. It has said that before, though, when I did have IPv6 peers. – Geremia – 2015-07-02T05:48:32.270

@Bitcoin (127.0.0.1:9050 is my Tor proxy, which is working, since a few of my peers are Onion addresses.) – Geremia – 2015-07-02T06:14:26.330

The issue was that bitcoind was discovering my wrong IPv6 address. (It mistook my link IPv6 address for my public one.) I set --discover=0 and set my IPv4 and IPv6 addresses manually with --externalip.
