Screenshot, disconnected icon is in top right, but network is connected.

Description of problem:
Giving Fedora 20 beta a try, upgraded from F19 via fedup.

Connected to the internet via wifi, when I enable a VPN the wifi icon disappears and is replaced by the no-network icon and the lock network icon. I think only the lock network icon should be there (that's how it looked in F19).

Screenshot attached. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 20 beta

I think this is a problem in NetworkManager. By sprinkling log messages in gnome-shell js/ui/status/network.js, I can see when VPN is on this._mainConnection is NULL causing _updateIcon to do use icon network-offline-symbolic. _mainConnection comes from _getMainConnection calling NMClient get_primary_connection() and get_activating_connection(). Checking these properties of NetworkManager via D-Feet they are NULL. Turning VPN off, NetworkManager PrimaryConnection becomes non-NULL.
