Sorry, to post it multiple times. Actually, two places netfilter and
then kernel bugzilla. I made the second report after it appeared
there'd would be no feedback to the first one and another kernel
revision had been issued with the problem still evident. (The first
feedback on the netfilter report crossed in the mail with the kernel

Yep, that's it. How could one know that there is such a module called
xt_tcpudp.ko, especially since there is no corresponding config
option? Wouldn't up-to-date and complete documentation explain how to
set up the kernel config and indicate which modules should be loaded?
On the other hand, shouldn't this module be loading automatically?
