That seems like a good reason.  The only solution I know of (assuming
that the "--up" command happens to late to help) would be to wrap your
call to OpenVPN in a script that would perform this for you.  To keep
any GUI working you'd probably want to rename the openvpn binary, name
the script the original name of the binary and pass all command line
arguments over to the new binary (if you follow what I mean).

                 Please keep list traffic on the list.
