I see what changed.  In the past, this seemed to work but we were using
tunnel mode.  We were trying to use transport mode in this application
but that seems to prevent the decrypted packet contents from appearing
again on the interface.  Reverting to tunnel mode made the contents
visible again and our filters are working as expected - John
