 Hello,
 
 First of all thank you for using FreeBSD and taking the time to write
 this report. However I do not think that this is a problem perse, did
 you go and ask around on the ipfw@ mailinglist? They have very good
 clue on the ipfw framework and might tell you what the problem is and
 whether this should be fixed by using the PR system or whether it was
 only you making a typo or something, this is important to not overload
 the ticketing system with potentially things that are not problems but
 user typo's (which ofcourse can occur, we all have that :-))
 
 Thanks,
 Remko
