That, indeed, was one of the several problems.  And this is all nicely 
documented (so I have no excuse) in


I had other confounding problems causing other problems, and so it was 
harder to identify this one (Indeed, I'd tried this at one point before 
solving the other problems and failed).

The other problem, almost too embarrassing to admit, was simply bad 
network math.
The subnet for the DMZ is xxx.xxx.xxx.8/29.  I had given .8 as the IP 
address of the OPT1 interface.  But, of course, the first usable 
address is .9.

In some test configurations, I had that problem and in others I didn't. 
  So it made it harder for me to pinpoint that NAT problem.
