[Openswan Users] force a single tunnel down

I´m using openswan-2.6.32-3 on a CentOS 5.8.
Is there a way to force a single tunnel down ? When I try it with:
ipsec auto --down connectionname
sometimes the tunnel won´t get down or get down and will come up again when there is traffic on the wire. So I cant unload the route to switch over to another tunnel with the same routing.
I can see the tunnel via:
ip xfrm state show 

or with: 
service ipsec status 

Is there a way to stop the tunnel without stopping the whole ipsec.d service ?

Any Suggestions are welcome

kind regards
