Actually, this is not necessary for IGating to work properly.  Filtered
ports will pass the remote station's posit packet with the message
packet to the local IGate for processing, regardless of what the filter
is set for.  This was mandatory for proper IGate operation and
implemented two years ago when the standard filtered ports were
reconfigured for IGate operation (yes, server-side filtering is only 2
years old).  However, the IGate software needs to gate those position
reports to RF which I believe is the source of the problem Steve is
seeing (the IGate is not passing the posits).
