Forget ssh, focus on interfaces, routing things.
Whatch what's appened when openswan is installed but off.
    -local ping 
    -interfaces ?
    -iptables rules?
    -routing tables?
    -watch the corresponding file in /etc/rc2.d/ 

Good luck.

  Probably the problem is with routing. Sometimes ipsec sets a double
  default route causing all connections to drop.
  I advise you not to use debian packages but to install from sources.
  It's much better using KLIPS (when it works in fact ;P)
