Hi Michenaud,

in alternative to Gerard's suggestion you could read the firewall-hint 
on, especially chapter (C), 
example (4).

It's a quick hack for ident-queries by avoiding the long timeout.

Just my EUR 0.02,


PS: Principially there's no need to implement the whole firewall-script, 
these two lines will serve for your needs:
iptables -A INPUT  -p tcp --dport 113 -j REJECT --reject-with tcp-reset
iptables -A OUTPUT -p tcp --sport 113 -m state --state RELATED -j ACCEPT
