It seems your openswan version is too old. Even though Aggressive Mode was
implemented in Openswan-1, it has only been recently re-implemented for
Openswan-2 to mitigate the dangers of people DOSing your machine with Aggressive

You should be using openswan 2.3.x release candidates to test aggressive mode.
(currently, 2.3.0dr4)
