pfsync works fine, and state deletions are synchronized too, but
pfflowd (with a debug message) just prints out:
    DEBUG: ph->action: 1
    DEBUG: ph->action: 2
No PFSYNC_ACT_DEL message arrives, only PFSYNC_ACT_INS and
PFSYNC_ACT_UPD. It seems as pfsync (on FreeBSD 6) uses PFSYNC_ACT_UPD
to notify about state deletions...

Sadly I'm not a programmer, so I couldn't figure out how to detect if
a PFSYNC_ACT_UPD message is a masked delete message.
