ppp and pf interacting badly?

has anyone else seen this strange interaction between
(user-)ppp and pf (on RELENG_6)?

When configuring tun0 as external interface in pf.conf,
pf won't start when booting, because ppp has not yet had
time to initialize tun0. Result is, that pf is then
disabled (!).

After booting, calling
/etc/rc.d/pf start
manually works well though, since tun0 is now there
and pf can initialize.

Am I the only one seeing this happen?

Is there any way to tell pf startup script to wait for ppp
until all needed interfaces have really come up?
