Quoting IRC meeting logs:

Agreed that this may indeed be a bug. Decided to do more research:

- check what happens if disconnect happens before connection has reached ACTIVE state
- check if this occurs when session is renegotiated (each hour)

Jan volunteered to do the testing.

Was this tested and fixed?

now that I'm rereading it actually looks like a duplicate of https://community.openvpn.net/openvpn/ticket/160 (or vice versa).

If we cannot reproduce this error it will be very hard to find a proper fix. The work-around patch proposed in #160 would fix this bug also, but it still is an ugly hack.
