That seems pretty bad IMHO, we have road warriors who regularly work
from home and need to be connected into the VPN for 8-10 hour stretches,
a good chunk of them are execs, who will not consider OpenVPN a viable
solution if they have to re-auth every hour.

I hope someone out in the community has dealt with this before and has
some suggestions as to how to fix this behaviour.
