Note that I have manually setup/used openvpn for years, and it works fine when
setup manually (not using NM).

Steps to Reproduce:
studpid question: Did you enter a password and forgot to check "remember for
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Using x509 cert, not password - if I understand your question.
FYI, this is reproducible.
Does the latest nm-openvpn version (from updates-testing-newkey) fix that bug?
This should be NetworkManager-openvpn-0.7.0-15.svn4027.fc9.i386
Please note that eventually old connections won't work due to some options that changed during the development.
What was the openvpn config you used to use? Did it have any of the --persist options enabled?
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
closing - long time no comment. Feel free to reopen if neccessary.
