I estimate many thousands have done it before and are doing it right now.

Definately upgrade to 2.6.22 or 2.6.23dr3. You'll have to build from source,
but that is a simple "make programs install".

With 2.6.14 it is likely a fixed bug.

You'd have to enable core dumps in /etc/profile on rhel I believe, then run
with dump=/var/run/pluto if you use selinux. If you compiled from source,
you can do:

cd /root/openswan-2.6.23dr3/OBJ*/programs/pluto
gdb pluto
core /var/run/pluto/core.XXXX
bt full
