Thank you for the suggestion. Seems not an option on my 3.1 system. :-(
But, um, it works now. Don't ask me why. I changed pf.conf, changed it
back, and now it's fine. <shrug>
The documentation says "set limit" takes one of only three arguments,
"states" | "frags" | "src-nodes".
With that line in my pf.conf, I get:
$ pfctl -nf pf.conf
pfctl: Bad pool name.
pf.conf:14: unable to set limit table-entries 50000
But then, after removing line 14:
$ sudo make reload
modstat -n pf || modload /usr/lkm/pf.o
Type Id Offset Loadaddr Size Info Rev Module Name
DEV 0 -1/161 cadf0000 0098 cae10da0 2 pf
pfctl -nf pf.conf
Reloading pf rules.
I guess the kernel decided to give me a break this time....
