FreeBSD Router Problem

Hi Guys,

Here's a weird one...  I set up FreeBSD 5.2 to act as a router.  I used
the pf.conf script shown at:

Everything works just fine.  Traffic is appropriately load balanced and
things work as expected.

Strangely after a few hours something just stops routing traffic.  I can't
ping the remote gateways either.  Both external interfaces still show the
correct IP addresses.  Rebooting the BSD box solves the problem.  Nothing
else gets rebooted.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
