Regardless of your previous experience, it is a bad idea to have two 
different firewalls configured and enabled at the same time. It provides 
no additional security and makes debugging a mess.

Have you considered the possibility of both ipfw and ipfilter doing both 
filtering and nat?

Another thing, I think I've mentioned before, you may have to reload 
firewall/nat rules after the jail starts.
