Hi Martin,

The problem is our tool erases database file and generates a new 
database file each time we validate a configuration change.
I've fixed this bug in our tool and it's ok now.

I wonder if a new fonctionnality could be added in StrongSwan.
ipsec reload could close database and open the new file handler.
Do you think it is possible ?

Thanks and regards,
