Please try this patch:

diff -r openswan-2/programs/pluto/demux.c openswan-2-patched/programs/pluto/demux.c

One fixes a bug I introduced when switching to always send the DPD capability.
The other fixes a bug where we go back to a clean state after a NO_PROPOSAL
is sent and the other end keeps insisting to fix this state (Vigor).

these fixes are not in cvs yet because Michael needs to look into these issues
a bit more before making his final decision on how to properly fix it.
