Hi Andreas,

Our system was typically built with minimum logs.  During debugging I
can manually turn
up log levels, but during boot I will have to rebuild the whole system
and I probably won't
get to that until next week.  Also our IPsec system is under a monitor
program, and I
just found the monitor was restarting the system and that probably
explains the "ipsec start"
output as it was shutting down.  I only heard about the initial start
issues, and not sure
if the monitor restaredt the system by mistake, or if the restart was
due to a real
issue.  I'll report back if I can gather more info from experiments or
from other folks
worked on the system.  And I'll get the logs if the issue is not
resolved next week.
