In pfsense 2.4.0-RC, when I attempt to kill states using the "Kill filtered states" button in the Diagnostics / States module, no state disapears when I refresh (by clicking on the filter button).

If I delete them manually one by one, it works.

What exactly did you have in the box? It only kills properly if you enter an IP address or subnet. The description may be more clear, but it works exactly as it should here when I test it.

There is my own IP address in the box.

Effectively, if I specify another IP address, it works. But not with my own.

Erm, eh... you'll need to NOT refresh... like, you are recreating those states when you refresh the page.

Yes, unless you are killing states from a serial or VGA console, your own IP address will always show up as you're connecting to the GUI or ssh to do it.

If you have additional questions about the behavior, please post on the forum, mailing list, or reddit.
