You're spot on there - that is the problem. These are my logs:

With Routing and Remote Access enabled:

Wed Jan 12 21:35:10 2005 us=800708 Sleeping for 10 seconds...
Wed Jan 12 21:35:20 2005 us=792733 NOTE: FlushIpNetTable failed on
interface [2]

Wed Jan 12 21:35:20 2005 us=794231 route ADD MASK

Without Routing and Remote Access enabled:

Wed Jan 12 23:14:50 2005 us=855884 Successful ARP Flush on interface

That's the only error I can see anywhere - everything else seems to be fine. 
Since I don't actually need the RRA enabled I've just disabled it. I 
certainly don't need the IPSec VPN in RRA up and running!

Thank you James Yonan. After several days of some pretty inexplicable 
Windows/IPSec problems, and after wisely deciding not to spend several days 
hunting around and deciphering all the IPSec messages in the event viewer 
(which I could probably do little about anyway as the L2TP handshake had 
failed for no apparent reason), I've finally got something that actually 
works - and damn simply at that. The most work I've had to do was creating 
the certificates and wrapping my head around the routing problem, because the 
VPN itself was an absolute cinch.

I'll let you know how it all goes over the coming days and weeks, but I'm 
really suitably impressed thus far.
