That's just the way OpenVPN works - if it's busy negotiating with new clients, it will not do anything else (especially when waiting synchronously to the external scripts).

Reduce the amount of work the external scripts do, and it will come back sooner - for client-connect, you can use the (upcoming) async-client-connect mode.

Closing this ticket anyway, as it's a "this is the way it is and it is not possible to change this easily within the 2.x design". Sorry.
