It is probably only "strange" in your environment.  :-)

Well, then I have another one for you.

Since turning off ipchains fixes the problem it sounds as if you have
some issue with ipchains.  Therefore, now seems a good time to dump
chains and move to tables.

Suggest you checkout and consider using it as
your iptables configuration utility.  Shorewall is simple to understand
and with a bit of reading you should be up and running on iptables in 30
minutes or less.
