the same situation here. I commented out the lines

        if (ph->action != PFSYNC_ACT_DEL)

in pfflowd.c and it seems to work now. But this is a very dirty hack, 'cause
the condition to only handle PFSYNC_ACT_DEL packets should save a lot of
unnecessary netflow datagrams - as far as i and my boss understood.
