[Openswan dev] pluto crash (DoS)

Hi all,

I just want to add another data point that might be important in tracking the 
pluto crash: on all systems that I use for testing this, the kernel is a 2.4 
one with PaX patches applied. Although I don't see any PaX messages in my log 
and therefore doubt that PaX is killing pluto because of invalid memory 
accesses, it might be involved in the issue. PaX also randomizes some memory 
addresses, maybe pluto has a usually silent bug in that area that surfaces 

with best regards,
