When you say "it worked" -- you mean the session key didn't need 
renegotiation (and thus the ping-restart/keepalive timeout never came 
into effect) during the switchover between servers -- such that a 
running ping across the VPN during the test indicated continuous uptime?

Could you post the client logs (verb 3 or better) for the relevant time 
period? I would be *very* surprised if they don't indicate a 
renegotiation taking place.

Unless you're in p2p mode, in which case OpenVPN is (effectively, much 
closer to) stateless and this all makes sense.
