Hi all,

mwi1# uname -a
FreeBSD mwi1.coffeenet.org 9.1-PRERELEASE FreeBSD 9.1-PRERELEASE #5

My ipv6 connections hang for several seconds when this scrub rule is  

scrub all reassemble tcp no-df random-id

This really agitates my browser and email client making them nearly  
useless at times. Disabling that rule makes ipv6 connections respond  
instantly as expected. Is this a known regression? My network interface is  
using the re(4) driver.
