Ok, I see the main problem.

We were using table-id 220 for our ~220th interface, and we were not expecting
any rules to point towards it.  So that is why just having the rule in place
was breaking our setup.

I guess I can configure strongswan to use table-id 22000 or something like
that well out of our range?
