	Well, that explains it then.  :)

	Yeah, I had that in there, but I got errors in my log saying that the
kernel didn't support nat_traversal.  I installed Openswan from source
and just built the ipsec.o kernel module and userland utilities.  I had
hoped I wouldn't have to rebuild the actual kernel because taking this
particular machine down for a reboot is a bit of a PITA.  I don't
suppose there's a configure option to have Nat-T added in to the kernel
module compile that I may have missed?  I'll go check...  :)
