Maybe to be more precise, it would be a semantic mistake, grammar in its
stict sense is still correct here.

>From my previous report on Bugzilla:

When the network is disconnected, a notification appears, saying:
"The network connection has been disconnected."

This is one of the sentences you show most often on your desktop, and it is
quite grammatically incorrect. *You can't disconnect a connexion, you disconnect
a cable; I'd rather say you stop/interrupt/bring down a connexion. This is like
saying "prices are expensive" or "speed is fast": just ridiculous... ;-)*

Moreover, the title of the pop-up is "Disconnected", so the term appears twice.
