I posted a while back about not being able to set the gateway for

It accepts the gateway and will work as expected, but every time I
edit the connection afterward, I have to re-fill in my gateways on
every individual route again - per connection.  If I never need to

This behavior just started (recently anyway - not sure the exact

Hi Greg,

Note that in nm-connection-editor a gateway of "" is identical
to leaving the field empty. Thus, if you edit a connection to have
gateway, next time when revisiting the connection the gateway
is cleared.

That is true, but when I edit it again, it requires me to re-enter before I can save it.  Would it be possible to add this as a
feature request to not have to add a gateway address (for manually
enetered routes) at all in the GUI?
