If this is an old version of openswan, please upgrade. If this is 2.3.0,
then please add dumpdir=/tmp in your config setup section, and you
should get a pluto core in /tmp. A gdb backtrace could be useful to us
to debug this issue further.

Ok. interesting, because we also got reports that %any in ipsec.secrets didn't
always seem to work. Thanks for the report.
