I've got this working as follows:

- Removed the UNITU_SPLIT_INCLUDE attribute from the SQL DB.
- In StrongSwan.conf:

pluto {
        plugins {
                attr {
                        dns =
                        28675 = mgorbach.home
                        28676 =

The 28676 and 28675 are the the SPIT_INCLUDE and DOMAIN attributes.makes a 
- Switched strongSwan to running as root, though I don't know if that made a difference.

The presence of a pool is fine, but the presence of a pool with this UNITY_SPLIT_INCLUDE attribute set appears to cause the connection to fail with the following:
