[Pacemaker] LSB openswan script monitor problems

As far as I know, Pacemaker does not parse STDOUT but it keeps STDERR 
for logging.
Experts correct me if I am wrong.

The important thing is the return value of the ipsec script.
You could debug the ipsec script. If it is a Bash script you can put a 
logger command after each 'RETVAL=$?'.

logger -t  ipsec\[$$\] "line $LINENO exit $RETVAL"
