I think it would make much more sense to fix the bug causing the crash.
If possible, please upgrade to 4.5.3 and attach GDB to see where the
SIGSEGV comes from (e.g. using ipsec start --attach-gdb).

Reload deletes (by starter) the configuration in charon and afterwards
adds a new instance. But the reason why a policy can't be added is
probably because it still exists after the crash.
