No, I haven't. There have been discussions on the ipfilter list about
problems with stateful connections, and I had a vague hope that newer
versions of ipfilter would fix that... probably over-optimistic of me.

This is about a production router serving ~100 people, and I already felt
adventurous with upgrading it to netbsd-4, hoping that would fix the NFS
issues with linux 2.6.x systems. It didn't, but added new ones. I'd have to
set up a test network with a -current machine, and try to reproduce the
problems... which I should have done before, probably. Given my current
schedule @work, that's unlikely to happen this month, though.
