I installed on Lucid and it blocked my internet access completely. :)

Hopefully for the devs, they will fix this before Lucid's release.

But the bogon list was correct unlike on whatever version of Ubuntu
Ray is running.

Uninstalling firestarter reset my rules to the result of your invocation above.

Uninstalling firestarter is not necessarily the only route to take. If
Ray wants to have a basic rule set, he can change firestarter's
settings to "permissive" so it does not use the bogon list.

Ray must have added the pricewatch rule himself at some point...
