The original person said he wouldn't look at it unless I tested it on a
stock kernel, which is not possible without reformatting my XFS root
partition. He has mistaken the inability to load both iptables and
ipchains modules at the same time for what the real problem is. All
2.4.x kernels refuse loading both at the same time. The problem is that
when such a conflict occurs and it causes deactivation of ipchains, the
init scripts no longer correctly indicate failure. But there is no way I
can do this with a stock kernel, so it will have to remain a bug, all I
can do is tell him he is wrong, and leave it at that.
