** Description changed:

  When restarting openvpn with "service openvpn restart"  this occurs:
  
  Jul 12 09:37:03 Muur2 ovpn-client[3831]: TCP/UDP: Socket bind failed on local address [undef]: Address already in use
  Jul 12 09:37:04 Muur2 ovpn-client[3743]: WARNING: Failed running command (--up/--down): external program exited with error status: 255
  
  Failing openvpn services to restart.
  
- Using "Service openvon start && service openvpn stop" yields the same
+ Using "Service openvpn start && service openvpn stop" yields the same
  result.
  
  When doing a "serice openvpn stop" followed by "service openvpn start"
- works.
+ in a shell it works.
  
  I presume openvpn returns before making sure the sockets it uses are
  closed properly or sockets report being closed wrongly.
  
  This is a serious bug . Machines become inaccessible after updates that
  require openvpn to be restarted.
  
  Thank you for looking into this.
