openvpn fails to launch due to empty pidfile variable

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: nico
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: openvpn pid Cc:


from /etc/init.d/openvpn:

        SERVICE_PID_FILE="/var/run/openvpn-$" \
        service_start /usr/sbin/openvpn --syslog "openvpn($s)" --writepid "$SERVICE_PID_FILE" $ARGS

log output:
