Re: Network Manager crashes after a configuration is added and a connection is attempted.

Hi all,

I thought it might be an issue with the variant type I was sending in to 
some configuration setting that was later being parsed when I requested 
the connection become active.   However, after going through my code to 
generate the settings, they all match what is documented here :

One interesting tidbit is that after Network Manager crashes, and is 
restarted by the system, the connection comes up fine and seems to work 
from then on.

At this point, short of cracking open the Network Manager code, I am 
running out of ideas as to what it could be.   Perhaps someone that 
understands the Network Manager code can shed some light on what might 
be going on?

Hi Chris,

This looks like a bug in NetworkManager.

The attached patch should fix it.

I made a scratch build with this patch for Fedora 20:
could you test it please?

Note, that this is broken for a long time, so although the patch
is for NM master, the bug is similarly present on Fedora 20 as well as
the older nm-0-9-8 branch.

 says that we cannot pass a GByteArray instead of the expected GArray of uchar. But I think the comment is 
just wrong, because a GByteArray *is* actually a GArray.
