Re: Additional IPv6 address

Once again.
After some investigation, it turns out to be *one* problem here, the
rest are "induced". The one problem is: when you edit a connection in
the Gnome "Network Connections" applet, and set "Available to all users"
checkbox *plus* set "Method" to "Manual" in "IPv6 Settings", once you
hit "Apply", the connection disappears from the list altogether!

Is the maintainer of "Network Connections" applet on this list? Can
anyone confirm that the problem exists for them?

Thank you,
