Known issues:

1) There *seems* to be a rekey bug, where rekeying doesn't work.  
However, we can't duplicate this consistantly, or even twice in a row
2) Rene (Debian Maintainer) reports some core dumps, but no 
backtrace/logs/config etc... and we haven't been able to get any more 
3) There is a security hole if you enable both XAUTH + PAM (which is not 
on unless you manually edit Makefile.inc and recompile) in pluto.  That 
one is fixed in CVS (PRE2_3 branch, and HEAD)

So no, your problem is not known...
