router doesn't work if rebooted while network is down

Last night the power blinked for a second, which took the cable signal down. I 
restarted the router. The cable signal is now up, and I have an external 
address, but I can't ping out from my other boxes. I ran "pfctl -s rules" and 
saw this wrong line:

block drop in inet from to any

where is the address that the cable modem gives when it has no 
signal. Reloading the rules corrects the address, but I still can't ping out 
from the router. I can't do "rcrun restart netif" because of bug 2425. I have 
to reboot it; then everything works. How can I fix it?
