Description of problem:
MCS/MLS loopback has a buffer overflow that is killing racoon. This is due to MAX_CTXSTR_SIZE in policy.h being 50 instead of the RedHat 5 value of
#define MAX_CTXSTR_SIZE 3344 /* (6 * 512) + 256 + 16 */
A context can be quite a bit longer than 50 characters, even without long MLS category strings.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Enable loopback labeled IPSEC. Use a context more that 49 bytes long.
SA should be formed
This is correct in ipsec-tools-0.6.5-8.el5
