    Specifically, an Openvpn TAP interface in more than one bridge?

    Uhm, it doesn't make much sense, think of a bridge like a virtual hub/switch, you can't connect to two switches at the same time (your nic has only one cable). Also from http://www.linuxfoundation.org/collaborate/workgroups/networking/bridge#Adding_devices_to_a_bridge:

    What are you trying to accomplish?

    I was trying to use the same tap device in another bridge instead of having to create another one.
