Did you experience this on the released 4.2 kernel or on a 4.2 release

If you have this issue with the vanilla, released 4.2 kernel, then
a "tcpdump -i br0 'icmp6 or ip6 proto 0'" for about five minutes and
a "bridge mdb show" would be helpful.

Also which distros are the dlna server and dlna client running,
how are they connected?
