if anyone can tell me why it occurs

OpenVPN is, for some reason, keeping an FD open on stdin/out, and SSH is
waiting for that to quit before it closes. Try modifying the startup script
to run something like


    openvpn </dev/null >/dev/null 2>/dev/null &

instead of (what I expect is)

    openvpn &

and see if that helps any.
