did you guys find out what was wrong? I may have a similar problem. My 
server loses connection after some time. I think it is because the state 
table is getting full, but i only have a couple of active states.

The current entries keep increasing, i had ~3600 this morning.

flo at tb:~ # sudo pfctl -vsi|grep "current entries"
No ALTQ support in kernel
ALTQ related functions disabled
   current entries                     4891
   current entries                        0
flo at tb:~ # sudo pfctl -ss| wc -l
No ALTQ support in kernel
ALTQ related functions disabled

Every new connection is added to the current entries but it seems they 
are never removed?!

I've set debug to loud, what else should i do to track this down?
