Description Jesse Keating 2007-09-30 00:33:16 UTC
At a seemingly random point after VPN is connected, the icon will lose the
little lock.  Yet the bullet for the VPN connection is still filled, and I'm
still connected to the VPN.  Obviously this shouldn't happen :)

Is it just my imagination, or has this stopped happening? I still get dropped
from the VPN but nm-applet notices and DTRT.

Comment 3 Matěj Cepl 2007-11-06 15:02:49 UTC
Still happens to me (like just now, for example).

Comment 4 Daniel Berrange 2007-11-11 19:39:04 UTC
This still happens with the F8  GA packages


The GNOME panel applet has lost the 'lock' icon, but I am still connected to the

$ /sbin/ifconfig tun0
tun0      Link encap:UNSPEC  HWaddr
          inet addr:  P-t-P:  Mask:

$ ps -axuwwf | grep vpnc

And traffic to the VPN still works. It's just the applet seems to have forgotten....
