I think the one that really caught us badly was when we 
tried unit-independent policers so we can have bandwidth 
management for v4 and v6 separately on a dual-stack link for 
a customer.

That crashed the PFE, very nasty. JUNOS 9.3R2.8.

Later versions of code are fixed, though.

With this experience (and minor previous ones), my advice 
would be not to automatically expect v6-based features to 
work just like v4 ones, particularly if you run the risk of 
leading to an outage.
