 That totally explains it. Unfortunate, though, because openvpn only
 supports socks5. Thanks for the answer.

 It would be handy to have the ability to tunnel openvpn through obfsproxy.
 Certain countries restrict vpn access, and tunneling openvpn through
 obfsproxy could be a robust solution. I'm sure it would be possible to use
 an intermediary like ssh to make the tunneling work, but there would be a
 sizable performance penalty.

 The leaked shared-secret was for testing only, not used in production.
