I've heared about similar bug, but with "queue" after "mask", when it helped.

Yes. I think you should better go to
http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr-summary.cgi?&sort=none&text=ipfw and
and find reports similar to yours. If there no such, create your one -
1) this is official place for bug reports, they won't get lost, and in
   mail lists - they may get lost
2) luigi@ just may be not knowing about the bug without report
