Doc Text:
The *keyingtries* libreswan option set to `0` is mistakenly interpreted as `1` The default value of *keyingtries* is `0` which means 'retry forever'. Due to this bug, if a temporary problem occurs during an active negotiation, the connection will not be attempted more than once. To work around this problem, set the *keyingtries* option to a sufficiently large number.
