incorrectly set Subnet Mask by Network manager

Description of problem:

Network Manager sets subnet mask incorrectly - instead of in example it saves

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

NetworkManager-gnome 1:0.7.0-0.9.3.svn3675.fc9@i386
NetworkManager-glib 1:0.7.0-0.9.3.svn3675.fc9@i386
NetworkManager 1:0.7.0-0.9.3.svn3675.fc9@i386

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Edit connection or create a new one
2. on IPv4 Settings tab select method 'Manual'
3. enter Address:, Netmask:, Gateway:
4. Save connection and connect
Actual results:

Connection information shows: "Subnet Mask:" which I believe makes some of the websites inaccessible for me.

Expected results:

Subnet Mask should be set to as requested

Additional info:

I just got back from the trip, saw one bug, which I posted a week ago, "solved" by forcing downgrade, but it caused this bug to appear. I am trying to use Network manager, but it seems that wicd is currently the best option because it just works.

when connected via dhcp, sub net mask is correctly set and I can connect to all websites without any problem (although I cannot set my preferred dns).

Should be fine now; you can enter either a CIDR prefix or a netmask in the box.  It'll always show what you entered as a CIDR prefix, but you can enter a netmask.
