You also have to add the corresponding push commands in the server config. As 
far as i know, the mac clients in our deparment are working as expected with 
the push/pull mechanism (as the were no complains).

... if you use the push/pull mechanism.

Here are the relevant parts of our config:
# Client should attempt reconnection on link
# failure.
ping 10
ping-restart 120
push "ping 10"
push "ping-restart 60"
# Push route informations to client
push "route-gateway" #thats the virtual ip of the server tap device
push "redirect-gateway local"
push "ip-win32 dynamic" # thats win32 specific

pull #the client gets all commands pushed by the server
