OK, it seems that the first problem was the certificate that ended up in 
Root Certificates list. I don't know how it got up there, but after 
deleting it, and installing new p12 file the whole thing turned to 
second problem, which went away after I added leftsubnet line in ipsec.conf.

It looks like it's working, for now...

The diagnostics would have been better if Openswan understood the 
non-encrypted payload in packet as "non-encrypted" instead of "malformed".
