[Openswan Users] Accessing Internet from Win/XP during VPN

Server is openswan 2.4.4 (pondering upgrade to 2.4.5) on 2.6.11-gentoo-r5.
It listens on a non-private IP, i.e., is not NATted.
Some clients are WindowsXP service pack 2.  Those have trouble.

I witnessed myself that while the VPN connection was established, Outlook
Express did not work.  I seemed able to access the Internet otherwise (e.g.,
HTTP to Google).
My users complain that their mail doesn't work and they cannot reach the
Internet at all while connected (DNS ( resolves www.google.com,
but that's it).  They can reach machines on the 10.0.0.X subnet only.

I haven't seen this symptom described here.  Any ideas?

>From a Linux client (openswan 2.4.4, IPsec only) all works fine, because it
only routes 10.0.0.X packets through the tunnel anyway.
