that might, depending on your configuration, suddendly route all traffic 
through the VPN, and I am not sure if already running connections
can cope with that. Be reminded that there is already one open
connection (persistent download connection).

So since I have no way to trigger that myself I have to say no idea,
and I guess you have to figure that out yourself.

IN general, messing with the network settings, and setting up a VPN is
exactely that, is not really the best way to be done during an update.
