If that is the case, Windows does not send a "delete/notify" message
when using ipseccmd -u. Perhaps there is another switch to that command?
Otherwise, try using "lsipsectool", which drivers the microsoft stack
using the ipsec2k library, instead of through ipseccmd.

You can find lsipsectool on sourceforge.net
