Ok, I rebooted the machine and the recyling went away.   Whew!

When I run ipsec restart I get an error in the secure log that states.

loading secrets from "/etc/ipsec.secrets"
ERROR "/etc/ipsec.secrets" line 17:  index ""latomalatomalatomalatoma"" 
illegal (non-DNS-name) character in name
"/etc/ipsec.secrets" line 19: unexpected end of id list.

my ipsec.secrets file is like
:RSA {

          default stuff in here
#do not change the indenting of the "}" "latomalatomalatomalatoma"

and a couple of blank lines.  Isn't a string version of the key 
allowed?  Does it need to be terminated?
