Definitely. I'm using openswan 2.4.6 on kernel 2.6.15 with 12 tunnels.
One of my locations is connected via wireless ISP and have permanent
link problems. Within one month pluto eat about 90Megs. I tried to
disable this connection in openswan and so far looks like leak is gone.
I'll try to recompile openswan with -DLEAK_DETECTIVE as Paul suggested.
