Fixed upstream in commit 2eaa1d4a7b0bd313178f6eb43458f2738c382e27 (mind, old patch that was here still contained a typo).

4dro, can you create a diff against the current package in natty based on the upstream commit?


I don't think this is really necessary. I think we can just as well take another snapshot from git, or simply backport that one commit until we SRU a new snapshot at a later point. We have a special case for m-p-b-i when there are significant changes: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates#mobile-broadband-provider-info

Also note you can remove the username and password from the generated connection profile to be able to connect successfully.
