That sounds like your first choice DNS server is failing when openvpn is
running and you have to retry with the 2nd one.  Check the routes to see

Sounds unlikely to me, as it is tinyproxy doing the lookups, not the laptop, and the dns server is dnsmasq running on the same machine as tinyproxy and openvpn server. Or have I missed something?
