    Do your debugs validate that?



    I think you'll find that the device with the higher peer-ip address
    actually initiates the connection.  There is a backoff timer built in,
    so if there's something (like a firewall) blocking the setup, the
    lower-ip side will indeed initiate, but it takes a while.



    In DLSW, your description of two sessions then dropping one was
    accurate!  :)
