Description rohirrim 2001-05-17 13:05:03 EDT
Description of Problem:
My ISP disconnects me every two hours. I cannot get rp3-conf to
automatically redial if the ppp (over modem) interface dies. If I click on
"restart if connection dies" checkbox, save the changes and then close
rp3-conf, if I connect to the ISP and am disconnected, I will not be
automatically reconnected as expected. Restarting rp3-conf will reveal that
the "restart if connection dies" checkbox will be unchecked. So I have to
redial manually every time.

How Reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open rp3-conf, create a new connection, click on advanced
2. click on "restart if connection dies", apply changes close, exit program
3. restart rp3-conf, go to advanced, see that "restart if connection dies"
is un-checked

Actual Results:
does not redial, "restart if connection dies" preference not saved.

Expected Results:
automatic redialling, "restart if connection dies" should be saved.

Additional Information:
Didn't happen under redhat 7.0 or 6.2. Happens on two boxes using rh 7.1
Downgrading to redhat 7.0's rp3 did not help.
