Yes, of course, you're both right ! I was totally wrong. So, my question is not relevant !

Are you sure ? Switchs are intelligent devices which understand the IP recipient address for a packet and send it directly to recipient. That's avoid broadcasting like hubs do. As IPv6 IP addresses are way different than IPv4 one, switch will not be able to redirect traffic if they do not understand IPv6. On the best side, they will act as hubs, which will decrease network performance drastically.

comment Linux: encrypting directories. Truecrypt? Dm-crypt?
By the way, you can set up a dm-crypt encryption on your filesystems directly from Ubuntu installation, see kuparinen.org/martti/comp/ubuntu/en/cryptolvm.html for further details.
