[Openswan Users] Double NAT disconnects after 40+ hours

I have a double NAT setup, and I'm trying to bridge two sides - a local and
a remote - of the same subnet via Openswan and Proxy ARP. Yes, it's goofy.
Here's a rough diagram of the setup:
[ local network ] -> [ local openswan ] -> campus network NAT -> Internet
Internet -> [ remote openswan / firewall ] -> remote network NAT -> [
remote network ]
I can get everything to work, and with Proxy ARP, I can establish
communication between the local and remote networks. However, I lose my
connection after some time - most recently it lasted 45 hours.
What I'm looking for this connection to be up 24/7. I can probably write a
Perl script to bring up the connection if it goes down, but I'd rather keep
the connection up.
