DHCP over IPsec

I've searched around the forum, without any success and there's been much headbanging against the table. My problem is just about identical to the closed thread at http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,14571.msg77154.html#msg77154
Two pfSense box's over the Internet, near side running dhcpd on a linux server, and the far side running DHCrelay on the pfsense box. It will not work. My testing environment has both pfSense boxes cabled directly to each other with a "fake Internet" and both boxes are running 1.2.3-RC2. Watching the dhcpd log, it shows the request for the IP from the relay on the far side, but the answer never goes back to the requesting station.
I see that so far this is a dead topic but it just won't work, and this is a real show-stopper for using pfSense in the environments that we had hoped.
Requests are getting to the DHCP server and it responds back to the MAC address of the requesting station
