Yes, for some time (at least a month) I have seen a similar behaviour:
I have a i386-box running current functioning as my NAT gateway and
after some time it collects a lot of NAT entries. As a user I
typically observe this when I use gmail from a machine on my local LAN
and the browser after a while cannot connect to the server.
It took me some time to suspect my gateway machine and then reboot
this machine would solve the problem for a while. Later I observed
that when it is stuck it typically has 1500-2000+ entries in the NAT
table and that running ipnat -F would clear it up without a reboot.
