Bridge + netfilter failing with recent Fedora 3 kernels.

Has anyone else seen this? A working bridge running Fedora Core 3 fails
after an upgrade to the one of the latest Fedora kernels. What I've
kernel-2.6.11-1.14_FC3 and earlier work fine
kernel-2.6.11-1.27_FC3 and kernel-2.6.11-1.35_FC3 fail!
The problem is with netfilter not with bridging. With iptables
shutdown the bridge works fine but even with very simple iptables
rules any network connections to/from or through the bridge fail.
(Fedora kernels are patched so it's difficult to say which standard
kernel version they correspond to but it looks like some new kernel
patch has caused or will cause problems with bridge-nf).
