No, my comment was all about IKE messages: strictly Pluto.

That does not mean that there are no Pluto/kernel issues, just that I
didn't mention them (and don't remember any).

I don't know what that means.

If a UDP packet comes in on an ANY, we don't know its source address.
That would seem to be a problem.

Another arcane fact: because Pluto only listens to what it is told to
listen to, it is actually possible to run more than one Pluto on a
system.  I used to do that for regression testing.
