As Thomas already wrote there is a file
/etc/openvpn/maemo-update-resolvconf then wich controls the behavior.

Friends and me are using a modified one which allows to do VOIP-Calls
via Openvpn, please be aware that you have to install the package
libmissioncontrol-utils to use it:


The corresponding config-File-example you find here:


Sorry for it's only in german, but if you have any questions I'll be at
