If I get time at the office tommorrow, I'll fire up a vmware session and
test out the L2TP stuff with a non-privileged 'doze user. I've always
tried it with a Local Admin user.

I'm pretty sure the L2TP client does create the IPSec tunnel on the fly, 
but the l2tp stuff may run with system privileges or something that'd 
allow it to work.
