Are your rules potentially blocking significant numbers of packets?
Are you running "ipmon"? If so did you give it the '-n' option? If so,
then do not -- that'll cause it to block waiting for DNS lookups, and
that'll potentially cause the /dev/log buffers to fill.
BTW, what do you mean by "thus ignoring any rules set"? Do you mean
simply that traffic which should be passed is no longer passed?
