eg. Gateway of dynamic makes the "Monitor IP" setting reject everything as having a "different Address Family"
Additionally, not sure if this is related but, checking the "Disable Gateway Monitoring" box on a openvpn client default route has no effect (despite being saved in the configuration file), causing OpenVPN clients to never work as nothing ever gets routed through the interface.

Code checked in, I finally gave in and added a drop down for the internet protocol. There is just too much that could otherwise go wrong.

I found another few glaring errors that would have otherwise caused issues, when all gateways are dynamic on a dual stack system the v4 gateway dissapeared when adding a manual monitor IP override on the v6 entry.

I just checked in more code, and the fix that allows you to actually save the ipprotocol value.

So edit and save the gateway and it should resolve itself. The Double entries that is.

The issue still happens to me on:
2.1-BETA1 (amd64)
built on Fri Apr 12 16:46:36 EDT 2013
FreeBSD 8.3-RELEASE-p7

I already removed and readded the dynamic GW and the route (therefore the GW appears twice in the config). This did not fix it in my case.

Maybe a bit of confusion will arise when reading the config so to explain just briefly:
Please note that i am doing Point-to-Point Routing. This means i am using /32 Netmasks on interface IPs and Routes.
