I traced the problem to pump, and I did a diff between strace of pump
when it works and when it doesnt (witout and with iptables started):

socket(PF_FILE, SOCK_STREAM, 0) = 3
connect(3, {sa_family=AF_FILE, path="/var/run/pump.sock"}, 20) = 0
write(3, "\0\0\0\0eth0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\300"..., 4280) = 4280
-read(3, "\1\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0"..., 4280) = 4280
-exit_group(0) = ?
-Process 7931 detached

+socket(PF_FILE, SOCK_STREAM, 0) = 4

pump seems to write something in the socket, try to read it again and gets
different results.
Note, my iptables are modular and I did not unload the modules, just stopped
them with 'service iptables stop'. Digging further, if I just do
iptables -t nat -F, pump works again.

Hope this helps.
