OK, I've investigated the problem and found the cause. It's already
been described in a FreeBSD PR:


Only in m0n0wall the situation is reversed (the problem happens on
the input side rather than the output side) because I've modified the
processing order of ipfw and ipfilter such that the following is true:

outbound packets: ipfw -> ipfilter
inbound packets:  ipfilter -> ipfw

This is so that you can write traffic shaper rules with internal
source IPs for outbound packets on WAN (rather than after NAT, where
you'd just see m0n0wall's WAN IP address as the source).

Anyway - the fix described in that PR works similarly for ip_input.c,
and it'll be in the next beta release.

Thanks everybody for reporting this issue!
