I have reported a bug (bin/7755) due to apparently being unable to
remove ipf rules with ipf -Fa. Subsequently I noticed kern/6319 which
notes the inability to remove group head rules. This could explain my
problem as well (since I use groups) but kern/6319 uses ipf -r
as opposed to ipf -Fa (I don't know whether the relevant code
is in common of if the flush uses a bigger hammer).
Anyway, kern/6319 has a suggested patch and hos been outstanding for
a while. Is there anything wrong with the patch proposed?
