Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 386851
vpn icon sometimes stays after vpn disconnects
Last modified: 2008-11-17 09:10:18 EST
Sometimes after I disconnect the VPN, the lock icon stays there, even though
the menu state shows that I'm no longer connected to the VPN.
~/.xsession-errors doesn't show anything
Usually after this happens I kill and restart nm-applet to get the icon back
This morning I came in and disocovered that although the icon showed I was
connected to the vpn, the menu showed (correctly) that I wasn't. So I reconnected
via the menu, and got the swirly vpn-connecting icon, and then... the icon
changed to the "no network" icon (computers with red X). Zany.
(I wasn't really paying that much attention when I connected, so it's possible
that the connecting animation was messed up slightly too and I just didn't notice.)
I've noticed this behavior multiple times too.
Seems to be fixed now?
No, I've seen this today with NetworkManager-vpnc-0.7.0-0.6.3.svn3109.fc8
Yeah, I'm seeing it again now too. Weird. It went away for a week, and I don't
think I was doing anything different than I normally do...
I occasionally see the opposite effect: the icon goes back to normal even though
my VPN connection is still active...
Pretty sure this hasn't been seen in a long time.
