It's related to the line just above it in the commit message:

"Add support for IPsec tunnels with (possibly dynamic) remote host  
names"

Does that explain what dnswatch is for? :)

I'm not aware of any problems with "DNS dying" (I assume that means  
the DNS forwarder, as there's not much else DNS-related that could  
possibly die on m0n0wall)...

Greets,

Manuel
