  Yes---ipfstat shows state-table entries being created, but packets from
the remote host are still blocked, for both incoming and outgoing connections.
I also changed hardware on the affected host, so I wasn't sure whether it
was the ipfilter change or something I botched in the transfer to the new
hardware.  I built the system from May 20 sources.

  I also have wondered whether it's an intentional config change.
