Tom, first of all, thanks for the great shorewall, I've been using it
for a long time and haven't really needed support in years. Until now...

I am installing a new server with shorewall-4.4.27-1 downloaded from
The problem is that after migrating the config from the old server (had
shorewall-4.4.24), I see these tc rules created
         run_tc qdisc add dev imq0 handle ffff: ingress
         run_tc filter add dev imq0 parent ffff: protocol all prio 10 \
             estimator 250ms 4sec basic \
             police avrate 0kbit action drop

even though I have in_bandwidth set to 0 in tc_devices. If I understood
correctly how the estimator works, they shouldn't be created.

Am I missing something?
