[Openswan Users] Any known problems with DPD and OpenSWAN on OpenWRT?

Hi there.

Recently I configured a Linksys WRT54GS with OpenWRT and OpenSWAN.  
Everything seems to be working properly, except that several times 
per day, the Intel IPSEC gateway decides the remote peer is gone:

yxdgate pluto[1762]: "maei-yvrnet" #611: DPD: No response from peer - 
declaring peer dead
yxdgate pluto[1762]: "maei-yvrnet" #613: deleting state 
yxdgate pluto[1762]: "maei-yvrnet" #612: deleting state 
pluto[1762]: "maei-yvrnet" #611: deleting state (STATE_MAIN_R3)

Is there a known problem with DPD and the OpenWRT OpenSWAN, or is it 
more likely that the DSL connection is actually failing periodically? 
Do I need to tweak the DPD settings on one or the other ends of the 
connection?  Currently the default section contains the following:


Thanks very much for any insight!
