[Openswan Users] ipsec verify warning

I've just upgraded from Ubuntu 10.04 to 10.10 and pptp & openswan/l2tp VPN
servers no longer work.  I tried upgrading Openswan from 2.6.26 to 2.6.32
but still no joy.


It seems that verify runs some checks not previously done.  Is the warning
listed below something I need to fix?  I haven't managed to find much
information about what this is.
