VPN on iOS - app restart needed?

Sort of interesting Apple security question: I have a VPN that I trust. When I use an iOS device (4.2.1 on iPad or 3GS) I often have Safari running most of the time. If I use Safari for an innocuous task, background it, initiate a VPN connection, and then go back to Safari to use eg. internet banking, does my web traffic pass through the VPN, or should I "kill" Safari and restart it? I use IP-restricted academic journal access sometimes and have noticed I have to restart Safari sometimes to be allowed to see articles, and it got me wondering. Clever paranoid opinions much appreciated!
