Re: nmcli - inconsistent response to query......

Ignore my previous, I had a brain f*rt!!

I just added a "$?" = 1 query immediately after the nmcli command to
ensure it hadn't output an error status....problem solved.

As the problem didn't get resolved last year I waited till Fedora 22
shipped with NM 1.x to revisit the problem.

Withing the script there's a monitoring section that relies upon the output from

nmcli c show --active

to give me the current status of the connections, however under F22 I
am now occasionally seeing the error....

(process:YYYYYY: nmcli-CRITICAL **: Error: Could not create NMClient

Instead of the expected........

  TYPE                  DEVICE
tun0                UUID blanked out for obvious reasons     generic
AVPN-TCP80  UUID blanked out for obvious reasons      vpn

This unexpected error message is playing havoc with the parsing in my
script and as it doesn't happen under Fed21 I wonder what's there any way nmcli could handle a timeout error a bit
more eloquently?
