Tested on pfSense-23.01.a.20221031.0600.

Client/Server (no DCO) crashes only after a reboot - starting it manually afterwards works:

I just ran into a different way of triggering what seems to be a similar issue. Editing a client with DCO enabled, unchecking DCO, then Saving/Applying:

I can reproduce that here. It looks like the problem is that we send a SIGTERM to openvpn, but don't wait until it actually exits before destroying the interface. That it turn causes it to not actually exit, breaking the subsequent openvpn instance.

https://gitlab.netgate.com/pfSense/factory/-/merge_requests/87 should fix that.
