Networkmanager's OpenVPN plugins connects to OpenVPN servers and
receives routes and addresses. It then decides to ignore all routing
information the server sent and always sets up a default route through
the VPN. It also takes some arbitrary host as gateway, not the one that
the server tells it to. In this scenario, it is no longer sufficient to
configure the server properly, you also need to duplicate all
configuration in the networkmanager applet on the client. It's been that
way for years and this hasn't changed since (although the last version I
tried was a year ago or so).
