Neither, I can have the driver loaded and in /dev/net/tun. The problem
only arises once you create a tun-device (i.e. openvpn --mktun --dev
tun1) and vanishes when you remove it again.

I finally found another way: it also fails if there's a ppp device, so
it can be reproduced with "supported" stuff: Call pppd, call omreport
and see it die.

Thank you for your help!
