Still no answer on my bridge question



Hi,
	Earlier I posted a note here asking about the order of processing
incoming packets on a bridge with pf. I would really like to know if
there is something wrong with our set up or if this is expected
behaviour.
I am seeing packets being dropped by pf that should not traverse the
bridge at all (i.e. packets between hosts that are on the same side of
the bridge).  After a little thought I came to the conclusion that this
is quite plausible since the filtering is taking place on the interface
closest to the affected hosts and the packets are hitting pf before they
get to the bridging logic.
I want to know if this conclusion is correct or do I have a problem that
should be investigated.
BTW I have also spent some time looking for docs that describe exact
order of processing of packets but could not find anything useful.
Russell.
