Since you have to restart dbus (to get the new permissions for the
module loaded) you also will need do restart the NetworkManager. At
least during my tests it would not recover from a dbus failure.

This is a bug, I'm going to look at it. I'm right now adding support for
static-key and password-authenticated connections so code is in flux at
this time. I will commit an intermediate version for this bug depending
on when my CVS accounts gets live.

This is true. Will do that.

OK, will check that. From what Robert send earlier this seems to be a
bug in the VPN manager which is not correctly deleting the values from
gconf since these settings are not managed in the VPN plug-in itself.

It's strange that the P-t-P address is the same as the inet addr. I can
confirm that, it happens here, too. NM always set the default gateway to
the tun device, which should be OK. But why is the P-t-P address that
strange?  I was able to ping beyond the routing barrier, though. Will
have a look at this again.
