Sometimes the rekey does take place, sometimes it doesn't. We run iptables 
but explicitly permit protocol 50 and udp 500. It seems to fail on DPD at 
times. The DPD counter just keeps on increasing on Openswan.

We will try Paul Wouters suggestion and upgrade to 2.4.6.

DPD is enabled using the defaults.
