I've recently run into problems because the OpenWRT pptp client drops a connection. I can circumvent this by installing the policy with iptables-restore.
But the "stop" action does not use iptables-restore, and it installs a "DROP" before it installs the "ACCEPT". I cannot exactly verify this remotely, but my ssh session freezes. I did "sleep 600; reboot" on a second session, so the router will hopefully recover. Otherwise I'm set for a little excusion...

So please convert stop_action/reset_all/reset_iptables_v4 to use iptables-restore as well.

    Forgot to say that the DSL connection for this particular router uses PPTP, that's what makes it hard to work on remotely.

    converting this to a Feature Request, we'll consider this for a future version
