I've set dumpdir=/tmp in the conf, I'll get a trace on the next crash.

Yes, the settings we've aggreed on were 3des-md5-modp1024, however it seems obvious that the nortel switch has more enabled.
Some of the other options were not working for us, so we aggreed to disable everything but 3des-md5-modp1024, but it seems that
some of them have been turned on again on the nortel. I get these errors when the nortel tries to renew, but when openswan renews
it's ok. I've sent a message to the admin of the nortel switch, so that we can get our conf's in sync again.
