Well, I spoke too soon - the export and import both looked ok, and it
re-populated the ~/.gconf/system/networking/vpn_connections subdir, but
they are not showing up in the nm-applet.  File permissions are all
correct, etc.. 

Only thing I did was upgrade from 0.6.5 to 0.7 (Ubuntu to Fedora8) due
to wanting to try the new features in 0.7..  

Would that cause any issues?
