Hi Gerd,

My VPN connection using 2.2.2 is configured to only enable the tunnel 
for two networks (e.g. split tunnel) and it works fine.  What makes you 
think this functionality is broken in 2.2.2?

If it is broken or not operating correctly, we should figure out why and 
submit a bug report - this would be a big problem imo.

Advertising changing the routing table after connect is not a good idea. 
I would think that organizations that implement full-tunnel would not 
appreciate users learning that they can break out of the security 
restriction that way.
