SubjectIptables ipt_unclean bug?

Hi all!

I think it's possible to hang the kernel useing isic 0.05
(, when there's a unclean match in
iptables rules.


(somewhere on target:)
iptables -A INPUT -m unclean --match unclean -j DROP

(on local machine:)
# isic -s rand -d target.ip

After <10 seconds the kernel hangs on the target machine, no console
switch/input, no oops/panic, sysrq only prints messages, but only B

This is 100% reproductible on 2.4.5-ac13 and 2.4.5-ac15. IS NOT A VALID E-MAIL ADDRESS, PLEASE DO NOT
CC! (I read the archives...)

Some info of this machine:
