Note that openswan can "correct" the connection if multiple configurations
overlap in phase1 (eg if phase1 is not distinctive enough). So it might
look like it picks the wrong connection while in fact it might not be.

But some logs would help to determine if this is the case.

Since l2tp is in transport mode, and the linux clients are not, try
adding an explicite type=transport to the roadwarriors-l2tp conn to
see if that makes any difference.
