For what it's worth, I tried ipsec.exe on XP SP2 clients connecting to 
OpenSwan, and the clients continually rekeyed; switching to the 
lsipsectool fixed the problem.  I also liked the fact that that the 
lsipsectool provides a userland GUI so non-admin XP users can bring the 
tunnel up/down (I could not get that to work with ipsec.exe - had to be 
admin to start/stop the tunnel).
