Description

Hi there :)

This is reproducible on a brand new 2.3.3 or 2.3.3_1 pfsense 64 bits with following simple load balancer configuration.
Note that, this doesn't happen on reload or when the system start. You have to stop the service from webconfigurator and then start it again.
I noticed this because the system was locking me out of pfsense at every load balancer start (we use the alias table to only open remote access to given hosts).
