Openvpn Sarge Update

Dear [Stable] Release Managers,

Please consider the openvpn_2.0-1sarge4 for inclusion in the next Sarge
update. I consists of a very small fix [1] that has been biting users
since the Sarge release, specially those following the security updates.

The bug [2] makes the init.d fail to start the VPNs again when call with
the 'restart' argument, thus leaving the server without VPN conections.

I tried to push the fix in one of the security updates, since it was
affecting those upgrading, but the sec-team decided not to include it.

So, I ask you to include it in the next upgrade.
