Transport mode? I would personally only use tunnel mode on both ends.

With KLIPS, one can set klipsdebug=all and you would see why the packet is being dropped. I
am not sure if there is such mechanism for the 2.6 native code.

You could try a 2.4 kernel with KLIPS and that configuration to see wether the problem is
in the openswan userland, or in the kernel ipsec stack.
