Your patch has been applied to the master branch.

Again, lightly tested with client side test runs.

There is a typo in the man page change:

-.B \-\-auth\-gen\-token [lifetime]
+.B \-\-auth\-gen\-token [lifetime] [auth]

this flag is called "external-auth" (the *text* correctly says so, and
options.c agrees).  I have fixed this on the fly.

Not exactly sure why we need a workaround for an OpenVPN3 bug in 2.5,
though...  when 2.5 comes close to release, there should no longer be
any buggy OpenVPN3 client around that mishandles username sending?  
So maybe we want to take that part *out* again...?
