    1616EDIT: I found the cause! There seems to be a hidden newline character in the textfile, even though it only contains the password. When opening the textfile on a Windows machine with the editor and marking its whole content using STRG + A, the blinking indicator moves to the next line. Copying and pasting this stalls the connection process of OpenVPN reliably. Marking the password manually and then copying and pasting it doesn't stall it.

    18 Is there some way to catch this case within the program? I'm still wondering though why gedit seems to place a newline character in there when the only content of the textfile is the password without anything after it.
