Either use bleeding edge initscripts from fedora, or manually configure 
racoon without the initscripts, or install openswan instead of racoon
as the IKE daemon.

This bug was in the racoon scripts months ago when I looked at it too, so
I get the idea not many people are using those initscripts a lot with ipsec
