fine but we usually don't have communication to the m0n0wall from the Optional (bridged) interface

(driver rl0->dc0, OPT1 enabled and re-bridged) and cables and get the same result.  Communicating to
the m0n0wall on the LAN interface works fine.

You need advanced outbound NAT with bridging in 1.3x because of the
way bridging functions differently in newer FreeBSD versions.
Otherwise the traffic out of the bridged interface gets NATed which
causes all kinds of issues.
