Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 312801
nm-applet loses the lock icon even though VPN is still connected
Last modified: 2013-01-09 21:41:19 EST
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.
Still happens to me (like just now, for example).
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

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