erf... You're right...
So our problem is not related to this Bugtrack... Damned.

Is this an issue about Vista rekey ? isn't it ?

In previous email (
http://lists.openswan.org/pipermail/dev/2007-October/001683.html), Paul
answered to somebody who had an identical issue :

Correct. I've notified Microsoft of this issue. You are not the fist to
encounter this. It seems their rekeying code contains a bug where it tries
to negotiate a "new" connection for the current one."

And he suggested :
"Though if someone would write a patch that allows rekeys to happen to
"the same ip/port as currently used", then this, if no other bugs exist
in Vista, it would workaround the current Vista bug."

Has anybody found a workaround for this issue ?
