NAT/masquerade not working on PPTP client when use-ip-firewall=yes

I seem to be having an issue with the interaction of these features. Basically I can see via torch/firewall logging that the packets are going out the PPTP client interface, however they are not being masqueraded as intended. If I disable use-ip-firewall, it works as expected, but as the cost of the...

That isnt your fault nor is it your problem unless there is something on your network that stops users from getting 1492 byte...

I think there may be a way around this by having a 3 tiered queue tree, the bottom layer with my match rule, the middle layer with my interfaces and the top layer with the limit.
After some thought I have realised that is not possible since you can't set an interface as an item in a queue tree.

Well partly because I am lazy but also because if I am throwing rather large pools (ie /22 or larger) at my LNS it starts to become unmanageable to simply exclude the boundary addresses.
