Absolutely. How are you starting OpenVPN -- through the
/etc/init.d/openvpn script? Where there's a line like

  for CONFIG in `cd $CONFIG_DIR; ls *.conf 2> /dev/null`; do

change it to

  for CONFIG in `cd $CONFIG_DIR; ls *.conf | sort 2> /dev/null`; do

thus verifying that your scripts are started in sort order. If you're
using the Debian init script (which respects a variable called AUTOSTART
to list the VPN instances to be started on boot), then you can also just
set AUTOSTART in /etc/default/openvpn to contain the VPNs in the order you
want them started in.
