I can deal with those easy enough,  do you want patches ?

I switched to OpenSwan HEAD and things look better,  some of the tests
still have 3.8 output,  some have 3.9,  I have added a 3.9 tcpdump santitizer
for old scripts (much like the 3.8 version).  Again, should I send in patches ?

Thats ok,  I am just trying to find the correct combo of bits so I can
have confidence in the testing,  and then in the tested code :-)

I am currently using:

	CVS HEAD for OpenSwan
	debian testing (tcpdump 3.9.3)

I primarily want to check that the async state machine hasn't broken klips
in any way.  If I switch to 2.6.12 will that possibly get more of tests
passing ?  Are you interested in keeping 2.4 up to date ?  I can start
dumping patches on you for bit and pieces as I go if that suits,
