pf scrub rules causes NFS problems

I was just curious if it is a known problem that "pf" scrub rules seems 
cause problems with NFS on the server side so NFS is almost unusable. 
Small file operations like create and mkdir work but anytime I tried to 
copy a file that was several 100K the copy operation would hang on the 
Linux client-side and I was left with an empty file on the server-side.

I tracked the problem down to my use of the following scrub rules in my 
server's pf.conf file:

scrub in all
scrub out all

I changed my pf.conf file so packets are not normalized on the ethernet 
interface on which the NFS traffic is occurring on.
