Do you know if this happens with other servers too, such as racoon or Windows
2003? I don't mind if it is a bug in Vista but I would hate it if the bug only
pops up when connecting to non-Microsoft servers.

And I suppose it doesn't matter if NAT is involved or not? And if you use
IPsec without L2TP or not?
