Hi guys, since NM 0.7 has hit the Debian archive, I got several bug reports, where users changed the configuration in /etc/network/interfaces, restarted NetworkManager (via /etc/init.d/network-manager restart), and wondered, why their changes were not picked up. The reason is, that nm-system-settings keeps running, when you restart the NetworkManager daemon. One obvious answer to this issue, is to monitor /etc/network/interfaces (and /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/, /etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.conf for that matter) via inotify in the nm-system-settings service. Nonetheless, I think nm-system-settings should stop running, whenever NetworkManager is stopped (just as it is started, whenever NM is started). Now I'm wondering, what the best way is, to do that: Should we just extend the init scripts and add a "killall nm-system-settings". Or should nm-system-settings monitor NetworkManager (via D-Bus) and shut down as soon as the org.freedesktop.NetworkManager goes away. Thoughts, Opinions?
