NPF looks really great and I'd love to try it as a replacement to ipfilter. 
Thanks for your hard work.

I'm trying the example configuration in the documentation, however I only have 
one if device on this machine. (the example is for gateway i think) When I 
issued /etc/rc.d/npf start I was locked out of the machine from the network. It 
seems like the documentation says it will allow pass all without first 
'reload', but instead it seems to block traffic(?). 

When I tried '/etc/rc.d/npf reload' the machine instantly rebooted, and then 
went into an infinite reboot, whenever it got to load npf it rebooted 
instantly, again and again. 

I'm running
> uname -a
NetBSD 6.1_RC1 NetBSD 6.1_RC1 (KAINDA) #0: Sat Mar  9 08:53:06 
PST 2013 amd64

I have not yet checked my kernel config for npf settings but maybe that's a 
place to start! /dev/npf exists on my machine.

Thank you,
