strange shorewall error

I'm running my internet firewall using an up-to-date unstable using shorewall.
Current kernel is 2.6.16-1-686
*no* self-compiled packages.
Only non-standard is the usage of eciadsl (taken directly from 
"deb http://www.flashtux.org/debian unstable main"
because I have been unable to make the standard eci-adsl package work);
this package is also the only reason I'm not using stable on this machine.
If someone can help me there.... :) ;) :)  
.. but that may be another question :)

It is now some time (~3weeks, after some routine upgrade) that I receive 
the following error:

ipt_policy: matchsize 116 != 308

This happens every time I do anything with shorewall (including "shorewall check"), 
right after "Loading Modules...".
This hinted to me that some module failed loading.

Sure enough there is a .../kernel/net/ipv4/netfilter/ipt_policy.ko module that
appears to contain the above printout!

..[un]fortunately this module installs in my kernel without a glitch and the 
above message persist even if the module is already loaded.

Does anyone have any idea about what's going on here?

Thanks in Advance
