Fix for use-after-free issue

This bug was reported against EPEL's vpnc plugin, but it a NetworkManager issue present in Fedora as well. Attached patch was created against RHEL 5.3 NM and was tested to fix the issue.

You can reproduce it reliably:
1.) MALLOC_PERTURB_=123 nm-connection-settings
2.) Import VPN settings, select file that is not correct VPN settings
3.) See the error message

Thanks for the patch. But if you make changes to NetworkManager, create the
patch using a unified diff format (ie, diff -u) and mail the patch to the
NetworkManager list (networkmanager-list@gnome.org). Thanks
