[Openswan Users] ipsec works for the first connection but then fails after that

I can connect from my MacBook Pro 15" OS X 10.5.1 Leopard road warrior  
to my Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn 64-bit OpenSwan server with L2TPD using  
PSKs perfectly the first time after I start the ipsec daemon. However,  
all subsequent connections fail until I restart the daemon.


My logs and configuration files are posted on http://www.lostcreations.com/~akutz/openswan_no_workie/index.html

I have seemed to narrow the problem down to this: the ipsec daemon  
cannot communicate with l2tpd after the first connection. If I restart  
ipsec and stop l2tpd I get the same error I am getting on subsequent  
connections. However, restarting l2tpd does not seem to be enough, I  
*have* to restart ipsec. I don't even have to restart l2tpd too, just  


Help! (I said it once, twice can't hurt, right? Oh wait, doing  
something twice successfully is why I'm posting in the first place)
