I apologize.  I tested again, and setting does indeed restore previous  
behavior, and is a valid workaround for running OpenVPN unchanged.   
Matthias, you might want to have a notice to that effect added to the  
port for the time being.

I agree that assigning the same address to both the local and the  
remote address of a p2p link is not really sensible, and will try to  
come up with a patch to OpenVPN.

Thanks for the clarification and insight,
