FreeBSD Pancake.jlauser.net 6.1-RC FreeBSD 6.1-RC #2: Sun Apr 16 19:29:20 EDT 2006     root at Pancake.jlauser.net:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  sparc64
The -k (kill) functionality of pfctl does not appear to work correctly (or at all).  As root, if I run "pfctl -k", regardless of how many states are curretnly open from that host, all it returns is "killed 0 states from 1 destination and 0 hosts" and does not affect the state table.

I don't have another FreeBSD machine running pf to verify against, but running this on OpenBSD 3.6/i386 does work.
Run pfctl -k <host> as root.
