I use ipfw myself, I read the email out of curiosity.

Personally I would clear the rules and add one at a time till I get an
error. Sounds like some people have no problem so there may only be one
small change that breaks your rules.

The handbook page on ipfilter links to http://www.phildev.net/ipf/
which is only a faq page, so it looks like the man pages are the best docs.

Sourceforge could still be the place of all development, the cvs repo
has a few files that were changed 7 months ago.
