I have a similiar experience. I can add to that the fact that in the box which shrinks to the task bar on the "apparently" successful connection, there are two tabs, one labelled connect, and the other labelled network. 
If I watch the newtork tab while the system is thinking about finally connecting, I can see that the client tells me that security associations failed .... 9 times  ... is that 9 associations or 9 tries? 
As a VPN novice despearate to connect, I have no idea what this means. Any insights gratefully received.
