Passive FTP Issues

Hello All:

We are having issues with a ³standard² configuration and getting passive ftp
to work.   Here are our present rules related to one server $liv_ftp_int/ext

nat on $vlan2_if from $liv_ftp_int to any -> $liv_ftp_ext
rdr pass on ! $vlan924_if proto tcp from any to $liv_ftp_ext port { ftp,
990, 49152:65535 } -> $liv_ftp_int
pass in quick on $vlan2_if proto tcp from any to <ftp_servers> port { ftp,
49152:65535 } keep state flags S/SA

When we put a ³block in log on $vlan2_if² rule before everything else, ftp
breaks.  When we move the block rule to the end of the pass rules, it works
like a champ.

Am I missing something obvious?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
This is 6.3 Release 1.
