Well... I'm not sure if that's it or not. 

First off, it looks like it's commented out, but even if you issued that
cleanly, it wouldn't change your routing. That's a receive-only
configuration. You would generaly configure an interface like that to
sniff on your network. You can't transmit from an interface with out an
address that is in promiscuous mode.

If you aren't using route statements in the openvpn config files and
aren't calling .up scripts from them, then you must be setting routes in
the interface configurations. If you have gateway settings for each of
your interfaces, then they would be creating persistent, conflicting
default routes.

Please post your openvpn .conf files, your ifcfg-ethX files and the
output of route.
