That is normal. Pluto loads teh data in memory. The CRLs are not persistent
over restarts/reboots. The ipsec.d/crls direcotry is just another method for
loading crls into pluto. Since you use http, you do not need files in the
crls directory.

Though perhaps it is an idea to savethem there, to gain some sort of
persistency over reboots.
