Resolution: notabug

The fix is actually quite simple: put the two DNS servers on two different lines

push "dhcp-option DNS 10.10.7.35"
push "dhcp-option DNS 10.10.8.35"

the fact that this seems to be a bug in OpenVPN Connect is because Connect is parsing the options more strictly than OpenVPN 2.x - the latter will just ignore everything behind the first DNS server IP address (so will only use one address anyway) while the former will flag this as an error.

I'm closing this ticket now, as while it might be somewhat annoying, it's not exactly a bug.
