Breaks networkmanager-openvpn 1.10.2-1 VPN profiles built on existing configs.

openvpn run manually yields: Options error: Unrecognized option or missing or extra parameter(s) in xxx.conf:22: keysize (2.6.0)
Use --help for more information.

deleting xxx.conf:line 22 , in my case "keysize 256" allows connecting manually, but connection through networkmanager-openvpn 1.10.2-1 still fails. Downgraded to openvpn 2.5.8 allowed networkmanager-openvpn 1.10.2-1 to function as expected

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.
* link to upstream bug report, if any

Steps to reproduce:

Dupe of  FS#77309 . If "networkmanager-openvpn" needs fixing then please report it upstream [1].
