OpenVPN monitoring dies

The OpenVPN management daemon seems to die on me after a while. The actual symptom I see is that the monitoring page and dashboard widget shows:
Unable to contact daemon 0 Service not running?
Nothing appears in the logs to indicate a problem and the tunnels themselves are up. If I simply go into the config and save it (presumably forces a restart) or restart the services then it comes back for a while. I think but can't prove yet that it is due to a link going down causing a restart of the tunnel(s).
I have two pfSenses running on snapshots at the moment and both do this. Not sure how to diagnose this and can't find a prior post here on a similar theme.
