[Openswan Users] kernel upgrade problem

I've been running openswan 2.6.38 since it was released in ClearOS 5.2 
using kernel 2.6.18-194.8.1.v5 with no problem. There was a recent 
kernel update to ClearOS to 2.6.18-308.1.1.v5 so I rebooted my server 
today to apply the update. I then lost all communication with my remote 
router (Draytek 2900). Just to be sure I recompiled Openswan and 
reinstalled it but got nowhere. I can see the IPSec SA being established 
in /var/log/secure but no traffic goes through the tunnel. I added a 
firewall rule " iptables -t nat -I POSTROUTING -s -d -j RETURN" and suddenly everything returned to normal. 
I've been using this set up for a few years now without any such 
firewall rule in place. Have you any idea what has changed and where I 
can look?
