I'm not sure how openswan and strongswan relate to each other, but
seeing the regressions while upgrading from strongswan 4.5 to strongswan
4.6, I'm not sure how stable those two things can be (not to mention RC
bug #680480).

Yeah, that specific strongswan still has to be reported, but I had
(paid) work to do urgently, so we just all downgraded promptly…
