[strongSwan] Android client settings

What is the default ipsec.conf settings for the Android client? For 
example keyinretries, dpd etc?
Because I notice a problem, when the client is connected and the server 
is restart (ipsec restart) it disconnects and reconnects (probably 
because the server is sending IKE deletes), but when the server just 
goes away (let's say DHCP or disconnected network) the clienbt continues 
to report that its connected forever.
The server is having DPD clear on the remote access connection, and 
removes the client, but the client seem to have not DPD enabled? It just 
sits there and if for example you route everything from the client 
internet stops working on the phone, wihtout even noticing because 
Strongswan report it still as connected.

Is there anyway to solve this, if not, this should really be fixed in 
the default settings for the client (either DPD restart or clear).
