[Openvpn-users] Problems with ifconfig-pool-persist

I don't seem to be able to have openvpn 2.04 write to the
ifconfig-pool-persist file.

When it starts, it creates (a blank) one, but never writes to it, ever.

.conf file:
(it originally created the file rw------ owned as root.
I chown[ed] it openvpn:openvpn and chmod[ed] it g+rw and restarted
openvpn.
Still won't write to file.
Syslog shows it ok:
Jul  3 12:53:54 link openvpn[57009]:   ifconfig_pool_persist_filename =
'./client2ip.txt'

Tried client2ip.txt  ./client2ip.txt,
/usr/local/etc/openvpn/client2ip.txt, no good
(it just creates a 0 byte file, that's it)

Tried with and without ccd dir directives.
