Similarly with Debian and Windows, after using the Arch tunnel. AFAICS, the reason is that the routing table in IPCop retains the following entry:

Please tell IPcop to upgrade to openswan-2. You are likely not processing all
NOTIFICATIONS, so the IPcop machine keeps the tunnel up and will only accept
plaintext packets from your IP until after rekeying has failed. Also check
that uniqueids=yes, which should solve this problem. And another way to solve
this is to enable Dead Peer Detection, using dpdaction=clear.
