Haven't used the combination myself, but in couple of cases MS 
developer/beta evaluation staff has been quite helpful when Vista beta 
got all kind of funnies when trying to connect to internet via PF. So 
giving MS the information of the problems in traffic might (in case 
you want to help MS to troubleshoot Win2008...) help some.

Another idea could be giving 7.x a shot as it has newer version of PF
