It depends on how the routes were set _after_ connecting. The server can
tell the client its idea of how the client should set the routes. If the
client has the "pull" option set it will do what the server tells the
client. If you don't use m0n0walls OpenVPN "expert mode", when you have
the choice to push the option redirect-gateway, that will tell the
client to:
(1) Create a static route for the --remote  address  which  forwards
    to the pre-existing default gateway.  This is done so that
(3) will not create a routing loop.
(2) Delete the default gateway route.
(3) Set the new default gateway to be the VPN  endpoint  address

I recommend you to further read the fine manual (openvpn(8)).

Even if you have fixed it: Please use latest version from [1].
