[network] VPN operations unavailable in gnome-shell network indicator due to too many wireless networks
Last modified: 2012-03-21 05:54:23 EDT
Description of problem:
It seems to me that the longer I use my system, the more wireless networks keep appearing in the menu for NetworkManager. The menu does have an overflow entry saying "More...", but on several occasions when I have been using the system for a long time and wanted to connect/disconnect to a VPN network, the operations for VPN connections were out of the screen due to too many wireless networks being listed. I can't remember if at that point the option "More..." was available or not. I'll try and attach a screenshot when it next happens.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I'm using NetworkManager-0.9.2-1.fc16.i686 at the moment.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable wireless
2. Connect to a wireless network
3. Connect to a VPN connection
4. Spend a good bit of time working
5. Try to disconnect from the VPN (most times I couldn't do this)
Can't disconnect from VPN.
VPN operations should still be available and the "More..." entry should hold all wireless networks that don't fit on the screen.

Didn't take very long to run into it again.

Same problem for me. I often will have to disconnect from the wireless network just to get the list to refresh (making it shorter) so that I can get to my VPNs.
