Right.  In the 1.3.2 ipfilter, keep state didn't work well at all, and
that would in fact crash the machine after a while.  So, I upgraded to
the netbsd-1-3 branch version, and that seems to be broken in a
different way.

Does keep state work in the netbsd-1-3 branch version?

I'm going to try a variation of the uipc_socket.c patch, which I was
told lead to mbuf corruption, and see if that makes things stable.
