    i tried it about a month back with -test11. my quad ppro simply
    locked up and died when i issued "iptables -nL". i got no logs just a
    freeze. perhaps only my keyboard mouse and NIC died and the rest of
    the machine kept on running. i posted a couple of times to the
    netfilter mailing list but got zero response.
