You're using Smoothwall GPL?  At the time, those problems did exist, and 
there were no changes to SmoothWall GPL for about 6 months (and no 
notice of changes being planned either).  During that time, I moved over 
to Debian and dragged the web interface with me - so the dialup box I'm 
setting up now is a combination of SmoothWall, webmin and Debian.
