[Openswan Users] IKE algorithms choice

I am not sure that is correct and the man pages do not descriibe the
observed behaviour. Whenever I've tested, irrespective of what I've
specified I've been able to make a connection with some other cipher and
protocol. When I've queried this I've been told it is a bug and you have
to use the strict flag (!) to enforce your policy. e.g, if I've
specified 3des, sha1 and modp1024 I've been able to connect with aes256,
sha1 and modp2048.
