I just ran into a similar problem with bridging - see inline:

Or that the WAN is getting it's IP dynamically.  If I bridge opt1 to the
wan while using DHCP on the wan, 'ip' gets filled with 'dhcp', which
causes ipf to bomb out.  I'm guessing the same will happen with
PPPoE/PPPoA.  I see the function to get the current wan IP, but not the
current wan subnet - am I missing a function, or does it need written?
