This is unusual, is it? If I do, will charon send or request the whole

IMHO certificate handling is a major pitfall, making IPsec configuration
hard to manage. This is surely not an issue with Strongswan alone.

I would suggest to improve logging here. asn = 1 doesn't list the subject
and authority key IDs, for example. asn = 2 overwhelms you with unwanted
details. Something inbetween would be nice.

Thanx for your help
