Yes, the code does not even try to start such an OpenVPN instance, thus there are no logs.
This PR fixes it on my test VM:
https://github.com/pfsense/pfsense/pull/3398

But there might be other side-effects - it will need review.

Failed without the new code, works fine with the fix in place. Looks good.
