+1 here too on the failure after upgrading to 1.2

My PPTP was rock solid for five months or so, then broke on upgrade.  
I did not install beta builds in the interim, but waited for release.  
This is on a Soekris net4801.

I see this in status.php:

@1 pass in quick proto gre from any to 70.xxx.20.242/32 keep state  
group 200
@2 pass in quick proto tcp from any to 70.xxx.20.242/32 port = 1723  
keep state group 200

Has there been any more reporting of this break on upgrade? I did  
attempt to insert these rules on the WAN interface as well. No change.
