You are. ;-)
Until you're considerably more familiar with ipfirewall and natd, don't
use stateful rules with NAT. NAT is already stateful. Packets on the
outbound side won't match your stateful rule, because they aren't from
192.x.y.z but from 196.a.b.c

So, set natd to deny_incoming if you're concerned about blocking packets
that aren't part of any connected tcp stream.
