GUIs for the OpenVPN client increasingly use the management interface. On Windows, in setups where users are unprivileged and OpenVPN processes are started by the service wrapper GUIs have to rely on the OpenVPN processes not exiting to control and continue reusing them for many connections, but this can happen in certain cases.
The OpenVPN service wrapper should either e.g. check for the presence of management/management-hold in configuration files or have e.g. a registry entry to have it restart the missing OpenVPN processes or even let this be the default behavior (is there a case where the current behavior makes sense?).
