Hello, I'm trying to write a python script that resets NetworkManager
when the state is not "NM_STATE_CONNECTED_GLOBAL". Does NetworkManager
time out and retry automatically during the "NM_STATE_CONNECTING" state?
Also, how is the "NM_STATE_CONNECTED_GLOBAL" determined(ie: is there a
periodic ping or something?)?

What's the reason to reset NM when it reports something isn't connected?
Just to ensure always-on connectivity as hard as possible?  Also, what
do you mean by "reset", what specific actions are you running to do so?

In my case, wpa_supplicant hangs every so many megabytes, and I have to
killall wpa_supplicant to restore the network connection.  I've been
wondering about a way to have NM do that automatically, since fixing
wpa_supplicant seems to be difficult.
