I must add to this that I have tried the same thing (with vista
connect to an external openvpn server and copy +4MB files to a WINDOWS
server).

My current conclusion: it is a problem with vista <-> samba over
slower links (with openvpn tunnel) but not really an openvpn problem
(it works when copying to windows, so openvpn is ok, right?).
