Default IPF: Packets Out Of Window

I'm having problems with receiving some mails on a QMail box. To be more specific, only mails with rather larger attachments (+500K). This appears to be a firewall issue, because when the firewall (IPF) is off, the message is received.

I kept track of the blocked packages and saw the following packet being blocked during such SMTP transfer:

09/05/2008 12:54:23.973302 xl1 @0:28 b,58211 ->,25 PR tcp len 20 1500 -AP IN OOW
A packet gets Out Of Window and thus is blocked.

I read that this is a IPF issue, which might be fixed in a later versions (running IPF 4.1.8 (416) now). freebsd-update didn't offer IPF updates and I'm not feeling like I'm going to upgrade that server to a newer FreeBSD (running 6.0 now).

What do you suggest, is there a fix without doing updates?
