Yes, that is present in all versions of the config file I've tested
with, even with the one I've included in my first email.
For some reason today I have tried couple of times and I have
successfully ended by myself two five-hour sessions. There are no major
variations in the config file, besides type=tunnel and type=transport,
but the dpd* variables are the same.
Of course, in no case I think the problem is resolved, until I have
more successful sessions.
