Ok - then I've some more questions :)

1. Do I get an information about the disabling and can I reenable it somehow?
2. If 1. is not the case - how can I add a new connection via dbus? I 
currently use a system connection from a config file but would not mind 
providing the config over dbus if I would know how.
3. Where's the patch you mentioned so I can take a look on it?
