Just tried 2.5.70. It hangs the very second that i try to enable
masquerading via iptables.
(iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth4 -j MASQUERADE)
(both with iptables 1.2.7a-12 and a home rolled 1.2.8)

Userspace seems to just freeze up but the kernel seems to live on, it
responds to pings and tcp sessions can be established.
Since this machine is the gateway for my home network it's quite important
that i can use masquerading before i even try to look at iptables.

Any more tips or suggestions?
