After thinking about this for a couple of days, I'm starting to wonder if there is some problem with when this log write is happening.  It's possible that the remote communication has not yet begun by the time the filter is being applied so the remote logging isn't happening right.

I'll try and carve out some time soon to look into it more closely though since it sounds like you were saying that the filter wasn't being applied at all since you were seeing traffic in your conn.log that you wouldn't expect to see.
