[vpn-help] Client to NetScreen fails xauth when using static configuration

I'm trying to configure Shrew and a NetScreen VPN in the following
manner: I want to use a static client configuration and XAuth
Specifically I want to "Use a virtual adapter and assigned address" and
to NOT "Obtain Automatically". I want to specify the Address and
Netmask manually (DNS too, but that does not seem to be an issue).
However, I also want to use XAuth so that I can use an external
directory for the users and passwords. The NetScreen unfortunately
requires modecfg to be on when using XAuth, so I also have to set the
Auto Configuration in the Site config to "ike config push".
When I set this up, I cannot connect. It looks like Shrew does not
like it when the NetScreen wants to proceed with client configuration
despite the fact that Shrew is already configured with an IP address.
The Shrew IKE log reports "user <username> authentication failed":

As soon as I change in the Site configuration to "Obtain Automatically"
the Address and Netmask things work fine. (The reason why I'm
configuring the clients manually is a long story and probably is not
Does anyone know a workaround or way to tell Shrew to simply ignore the
config parameters that the NetScreen is sending?
The Shrew client is 2.1.7 on WinXP SP3 and the NetScreen is running
