Description

In /usr/local/bin/ping_hosts.sh we have
..
  1. Read in ipsec ping hosts and check the CARP status
    if [ -f /var/db/ipsecpinghosts ]; then
    IPSECHOSTS="/var/db/ipsecpinghosts"
    CURRENTIPSECHOSTS="/var/db/currentipsecpinghosts"
    IFVPNSTATE=`ifconfig $IFVPN | grep "carp: BACKUP vhid" | wc -l`

Please change that to

  1. Read in ipsec ping hosts and check the CARP status
    if [ -f /var/db/ipsecpinghosts && -s /var/db/ipsecpinghosts ]; then
    ...
    Because /var/db/ipsecpinghosts seems to get written by the gui at 0 bytes whether we use ipsec or not.
    Which causes the pinger to run ifconfig, which waits on a lock, which I think participates in a deadlock situation.
    And, even if it doesn't, there's no point in running a bunch of ifconfig commands when the file exists and is size 0.

It wasn't quite as simple as changing that one line, but I made a change that should have the same net effect.
