Likewise, I've been running a similar setup here with no issues for a number
of months. I've made sure both the ADSL modem (X-Modem) and the m0n0wall are
running through a cheapy UPS to prevent IP changes - which may or may not be
an issue to others.

Have you tried this solution using an ISP that offers multiple WAN IPs? I'm
very curious to see if the ADSL modems will still stay out of the way and
route correctly for multple IPs, not just the primary IP.
