Source port rewriting maybe?  1.3b14 added "imported ipnat source port
randomization patch from FreeBSD CVS", and rewriting source ports will
break a lot of games. Maybe 1:1 doesn't rewrite source ports. Trying
1.3b13 would confirm or deny that.

I also see:
"added new option to System: Advanced page to control the port range
used for random source port allocation during outbound NAT (default is
1024 - 64535; portrange sysctls have been adjusted accordingly)"

But don't see a mention of any ability to turn it off and I don't have
a b14 or newer box handy right now.
