This bug was fixed in the package openvpn - 2.2.1-5ubuntu1

openvpn (2.2.1-5ubuntu1) precise; urgency=low

  * Merge from Debian unstable. Remaining changes: (LP: #907828)
    + debian/openvpn.init.d:
      - Do not use start-stop-daemon and </dev/null to avoid blocking boot.
      - Show per-VPN result messages.
      - Add "--script-security 2" by default for backwards compatabliity.
    + debian/control: Add lsb-base >= 3.2-14 to allow status_of_proc()

openvpn (2.2.1-5) unstable; urgency=low

  * Avoid sending ICMP redirects when using tun devices and "subnet"
    topology. Thanks Simon Deziel for testing and the patch.
    (Closes: #656241)
    The init.d script will set all.send_redirects=0 when using "dev tun"
    and "topology subnet". More info in README.Debian.
  * Several manpage fixes

openvpn (2.2.1-4) unstable; urgency=low

  * Use dpkg-buildflags to fill CFLAGS in ./configure. (Closes: #655130)
  * debian/rules: Moved to dh.
  * debian/rules: Changed DEB_BUILD_ARCH_OS with DEB_HOST_ARCH_OS.
  * Removed quilt Build-Depends.
  * debian/openvpn.default: Clarify what "vpn name" refers to.
    (Closes: #657610)
