I don't know if it's related, but I've had problems with packets to/from
a recent -CURRENT box not being able to traverse a pf (running on
6.2-stable) firewall with NAT and state rules.  Some of the packets are
dropped unless I disable net.inet.tcp.rfc1323 on the system running
-CURRENT, enough to cause ssh connections to stall and drop before

6.x machines behind the same firewall work just fine.  I can provide
tcpdump output if someone thinks it will help.
