Odd. I just checked /etc/sysconfig/ip6tables and there is this line:

-A INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 22 -j ACCEPT

But, then, we have the same situation as above, I guess, where you said there 
was a difference between the "saved configuration" and the "current, in-memory 

Oddly, though:

# ip6tables -L|grep ssh
ACCEPT     tcp      anywhere             anywhere             state NEW tcp 

I guess thatś because I restarted after I came back from the body shop.
