[ovs-discuss] tag option for port and openflow dl_vlan filter

Hello everyone.

I found that if I create a port with tag (ovs-vsctl add-port br0 port0 
tag=xx), than I can't match this port in openflow rules, e.g. rule like 
this does not work:

ovs-ofctl add-flow br0 "in_port=port0,dl_vlan=xx actions=DROP"

I suspect that "tag" does not actually append vlan fields to the packet. 
Am I right? If so, is there a way to force OVS to write this bloody tag 
for real?
