Description Cesar Alvernaz 2008-12-26 10:02:24 EST
The device connection doesn't disappear from NetworkManager applet.

Version     : 0.7.0
Release     : 0.12.svn4326.fc10

Plug the device to usb. Select the recognized connection on NetworkManager applet and connect. Then select this connection and disconnect using option at NetworkManager applet. Unplug the device. Then plug the device again, other connection at NetworkManager was recognized. Now two connections state on the list, but only one (the last one) can really make the connection, and only one (the last one) are really associated to device.

If I repeat this use case over and over again, the list increase linearly.

nm-tool output

This is a nm-tool output, two usb devices are detected, but only one are actually connected.

This is actually a hal-info bug, only the primary interface of the 3G card should be tagged as supporting GSM or CDMA.  Can you paste the "/sbin/lsusb" output?

(note to richard: i'll be adding udev-based probing soon so we can ignore 3G modems in hal-info from then on)

This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10.  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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '10'.

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 10'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 10 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: 
Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2009-12-18 02:24:30 EST
Fedora 10 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-12-17. Fedora 10 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
