iptables and udp socket

Dear List members,
I'm quite new to netfilter/iptables, I have been using it for some weeks.
I would like to ask if it may lead to undeterministic behaviour of iptables
when an udp socket is opened on an IP:port while in parallel iptables
rules (NAT) are setup that forward all incoming packets received on
that IP:port to a different destination. So I just want to use the socket
for sending out packets on it, while incoming packets should be
forwarded to other destination. But sometimes the packets are
received on the socket, sometimes they are forwarded. So iptables
don't have always the expected effect.
I use Debian with iptables 1.2.11.
What is your opinion?
