A bug causing this issue was fixed in NetworkManager (unfortunately
after the 0.7 release):

commit 6bfade3227752f6565a3812238dee415b077b967

It will be in NM 0.7.1.  Furthermore, the vpnc plugin has been enhanced
to allow you to selectively save your user and group passwords, to
better support one-time-pad and token use-cases, or users who simply
want to enter their password in each time.
