There is a problem in inter-operating the old filterfile-based and the
new Lua-based filtering, which has been discussed several times.  We
have three ways to solve it:

1.  decommission of filterfile
2.  decommission of Lua
3.  make both work again at users choice

At the outset I wanted both to work, but it turned out that changes to
leafnode-2 are needed.  So I checked in an experimental branch with
a possible fix.  Matthias did not yet look at it or decide what should
be done.

My own leafnode-2 installation is almost identical to
2.0.0.alpha20090908a with the big difference of unsetting the
"filterfile" option and using only Lua, and it works.  This would be 1.
in the above list.

You should propably go back to 2.0.0.alpha20081120a, which has no Lua
but lets you use filterfile.
