i dont know whether this prob still exists. i run 5.2.1 on this system
(inet6 disabled as i said) and actually i do not really want to update
to -current at the moment cause this is my "production" workstation. :(

unfortunately i could not reproduce this problem on my test system
(inet6 enabled; using pf) ...

but what i can do is, i can build a current kernel only, reboot the
system with it, start pf, connect to the internet (dsl) and see whether
this panic occurs again. 
i dont know whether this will work .... (?)
