How to avoid the QoS being bypassed when using Tomato's OpenVPN client?

    I noticed that when I connect to my OpenVPN provider with TOmato'o built-in OpenVPN client, the QoS isn't enforced.
    The QoS sees all the different streams (ie not a single connection to the VPN server but separate www, usenet etc connections), however it fails to classify them properly and puts them all in 'unknown'.
    How can I fix this? My QoS setup works fine when I deactivate the OpenVPN connection.

    Well I guess it isn't possible then?

    Upon further testing there seems to be another problem: the WRT54G does not have enough CPU power to process all the data it gets.
    When I connect to my VPN network via OpenVPN on my Mac, I get around 3.3Mbits, when I do it via Tomato's OpenVPN I get around 1.4Mbits to the same server but with indecent CPU load (1.35/1.35/1.35) on the router
