    Running BSD firewall from Webmin 1.620 is running out of swap very soon.
    Looks like it's a bug that's eating all memory.
    3GB RAM, 1GB swap, FreeBSD 9.1 AMD64.
    Anybody know a fix for this ?

    Well. Solved it. Apparently the interpretation of my firewall rules is too complex.
    When I put in just allow all it's fine.
    If I run my rules and press 'revert configuration' so it picks up the existing rules the system chokes again.
    I started with an empty list and added rules through the web-interface. Looks like that is working fine.
    (although I didn't put in all my rules, just the basics)
