I am currently using work and personal profiles with orbot running in vpn mode on both in parallel. Generally they get along well, since they have different SOCKS and HTTP ports, and android sets up two VPN configurations. As such, I do not see issues with public web traffic. However routing to hidden services only works on one orbot at a time, usually the primary profile. On the other profile, usually work, I get the following tor log line and connection failure within a VPNed app:

WARN: Missing mapping for virtual address [SCRUBBED]. Refusing.

This appears to be caused by the app from the work profile resolving the .onion domain against the personal orbot's DNSPort. I am able to reproduce the failure in the profile of my choosing by setting that orbot to use DNSPort 5401, and the other orbot to use 5400 (the default value). This does not appear to be a hardcoded port issue though, because if 5401 and 5402 are set, one of the two orbots wins and can route .onion addresses while the other still cannot.
