[Openswan Users] Renegotiation failure

I am using the line 'ipsec whack --name IPSecTest --xauthname <username> --xauthpass <password> --initiate' to bring up my IPsec tunnel and authenticate against a Radius server.  I am getting this message when it attempts renegotiation:

"XAUTH username requested, but no file descriptor available for prompt"

Is there a fix for this?

I'm running Linux, Openswan 2.4.4.
