I have committed a fix to s-c-securitylevel to set up stateless rules
for what you select in the UI, and this fix has made its way into the
FC6 trees.  So this should be fixed up for the final release.

In the future if you have problems with how the default firewall is set
up, please file a bug against system-config-securitylevel and I will fix
it.  Just leaving things in email makes the big assumption that I will
read everything, and there's way too much mail for that.  Thanks.
