Hello, and thanks for answering. What you suggest in your first point
has to be done by openvpn, because the lost route is not one I created
myself, it is a route created automatically by openVPN (as described
in my first mail). I guess openvpn has to mark that route permanent
(and delete it when tunnel is closed).

about point 2 ... To be honest, I couldn't find anything useful
googling about that. But I think that the route we care about here is
not linked to an interface, so the route will be "de-programmed"
anyway. It is a route added by openvpn after interface is setup, so I
guess that won't help.
