    33I could investigate the issue a little further, and found it should be related to the problem described by Ludovic Rousseau in his blog post: [https://ludovicrousseau.blogspot.fr/2015/11/os-x-el-capitan-bug-pcsc-not-usable.html].

    5 If that’s right, the problemn should not occur with OS X Yosemite or earlier, or with PKCS#11 libraries that do not use PC/SC (like software-only PKCS#11 libraries).

    77If I understand it correctly, that is an issue that Apple is not willing to fix in his PC/SC implementation… It looks like OpenVPN needs to “exec [it]self” after forking. Unless I’m missing something, it means that OpenVPN would have to `exec` itself, and then re-parse its arguments and any included configuration file, which looks quite inefficient (not to say stupid).
