Filtering Bridge not really filtering anything.

I'm struggling with a strange problem. I'm running RC2 on a PC with 3 NICs: LAN, WAN and WIFI_BRIDGE. On WIFI_BRIDGE I connected an access point that runs in bridging mode and does only WPA encryption. WIFI_BRIDGE is bridged to LAN. WAN is configured with NAT enabled.
Now, besides the specific behaviour I'd like to get from pfSense, I narrowed the problem down to something really simple:
- Filtering Bridge disabled. Everything goes in & out as expected.
- Filtering Bridge enabled. No rules. Wireless clients don't even get an IP from pfSense DHCP as expected.
However, if I force manually an IP on a client everything goes in & out again!
Of course I reset states, rebooted. Nothing changed.
Does anybody have some idea?

Maybe I'm mistaken, but can it be because you forgot to turn off the DHCP from the access point ?
