+1 -- you need to let it settle out. However, I think most people who whirlpool in the kettle are using an immersion chiller, not a CFC. Personally, as soon as I flame out, I immediately push it through my CFC, I dont like luke-warm wort sitting in my kettle, so I don't whirlpool before going through my CFC.
I am interested, however, to see how other people filter out trub while still using a CFC. I usually just leave the cold break in the fermenter and haven't had any real complaints, but I'm always open to adjusting my methods...
