[Openswan Users] KLIPS FC3

Has anyone successfully used KLIPS on Fedora Core 3? I've builded the source 
rpm with latest kernel (2.6.11-1-14_FC3). It actually brings up and ipsec0 
interface, and, in theory, it should be working just fine, but when I try to 
bring up a real tunnel, It just crashes with a kernel error:

Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000000

And it happens after:

klips_debug:ipsec_alg_enc_key_create: about to call:set_key(key_e=c8043400, 
ekp=c808ea60, key_size=16)

Then it restarts the tunnel automatically, repeating the same error over and 
over again.

There is a LOT more output, since I have klipsdebug=all, but I don't see 
anything else relevant.

With netkey it works just fine, so I guess my config is OK.

Is the code mature enough for KLIPS or it still needs some tweeks to work?

The one "other" thing I want to ask is about this:

klips_debug:ipsec_xmit_sanity_check_skb: found IP Version 6 but cannot 
process other IP versions than v4.

Whit an output on the console:

ipsec0: no IPv6 routers present

Is this normal or is there some configuration to disable this IPv6 stuff?

Sorry about the load of questions!
