Description of problem:
I'm trying to set up an OpenVPN connection in NetworkManager on Fedora 8. As soon as I put a single character in both the "Connection name" and "Gateway address" fields in the "Create VPN Connection 2 of 2" window, the window closes. I can fill in the "Connection name" field with, for example, "work" or "test", tab to the "Gateway address" field: as soon as I type any character, the window closes. Likewise I can fill in the "Gateway address" field first, then move input focus to the "Connection Name" field, as soon as I press any key, the window closes. There is no bug-buddy crash dialog or log entry pertaining to NetworkManager.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click NetworkManager icon in GNOME panel
2. Click "VPN Connections" -> "Configure VPN" -> "Add" -> "Forward" -> select "OpenVPN Client" -> "Forward"
3. Fill in anything to "Connection name", move input focus (Tab or mouse click) to "Gateway address"
4. Press a key
the druid window and VPN Connections window both closed
the input should have been accepted and I should have been able to fill in the other parameters.
This is a fresh install of F8 (all filesystems except /home newfs'ed from a F7 installation). I have tried a different, freshly-created user account and seem the same problem. I can create vpnc-based VPN connections without problem.
