iptables -F INPUT
iptables -F OUTPUT
iptables -F FORWARD
iptables -F DMZ
iptables -X DMZ
iptables -F ICMP
iptables -X ICMP
iptables -F SMTPDROP
iptables -X SMTPDROP
iptables -t nat -F POSTROUTING # slå av NAT'ing
iptables -t nat -F PREROUTING # slå av redirect

This is what I do when I run my script with stop parameter. The reason I
empty each separately is that I have one chain that I don't want to
reload every time (called NORDIC that is the IP classes of the nordic
countries). When running these -F and -X the problem goes away. 

My firewall script works shortly by masking out all traffic to a x/30
mask that is sent to the DMZ chain. All SMTP (dest. port 25) is filtered
in SMTPDROP, and ICMP in the ICMP chain. 

I run the following kernel modules:

modprobe ip_tables
modprobe ip_conntrack
modprobe ip_conntrack_ftp
modprobe ip_conntrack_irc
modprobe ip_nat_ftp
modprobe ip_nat_irc
modprobe ipt_ULOG
