I am seeing this, too, but it's news to me. Today is the first time I really
saw it happen.

pflocal get's suddenly nervous, and memory usage blows up, within a few
seconds it sucks up all availalable RAM, and then swap (but slower). I saw a
swap decrease of 4 MB every few seconds.

It's hard to get diagnostic info at this stage. I could run one "ps aux",
which showed a memory usage of 66 MB, but after that, I could not get the
number of ports nor the number of threads. I will try to get more info.

Maybe it is related to the pflocal changes without the corresponding new
glibc, and updating glibc fixes that.

Anyway, for the record, I submit it as a Debian bug. Please drop
submit@bugs.debian.org when replying.
