Any specific kernel panic?

Okay, to have more then 14000 you should add more RAM (64 MB is too
little). You could prevent the memory exhaustion by setting a maximum
number of states.
pfctl -m states=14000
According to Daniel's USENIX presentation you should be able to handle
64000 states with 64 MB RAM. Strange ...
