Bug Description

Please backport openconnect 4.06-1ubuntu1 (universe) from quantal to precise.

Reason for the backport:
Split-tunneling support has been added in precise but the openconnect version shipping with 12.04 is not supporting this feature.
In situations when multiple domains are passed from the cisco gateways network manager is unable to apply the split-tunneling correctly. It just redirects the dns queries for the default domain, not for all the specified domains. Because of this, internal resources' domain records are queried through the ISP DNS instead of the DNS provided by the VPN.

Mark off items in the checklist [X] as you test them, but please leave the checklist so that backporters can quickly evaluate the state of testing.

You can test-build the backport in your PPA with backportpackage:
$ backportpackage -u ppa:<lp username>/<ppa name> -s quantal -d precise openconnect

* precise:
[ ] Package builds without modification
[ ] openconnect installs cleanly and runs
[ ] libopenconnect2 installs cleanly and runs
[ ] libopenconnect-dev installs cleanly and runs

Reverse dependencies:
The following reverse-dependencies need to be tested against the new version of openconnect. For reverse-build-dependencies (-Indep), please test that the package still builds against the new openconnect. For reverse-dependencies, please test that the version of the package currently in the release still works with the new openconnect installed. Reverse- Recommends, Suggests, and Enhances don't need to be tested, and are listed for completeness-sake.

* network-manager-openconnect-gnome
  [ ] precise (Reverse-Depends)
* network-manager-openconnect
  [ ] precise (Reverse-Depends)


* libopenconnect1
  [ ] precise (Reverse-Conflicts)
  [ ] precise (Reverse-Replaces)
* network-manager-openconnect
  [ ] precise (Reverse-Build-Depends)
  [ ] precise (Reverse-Build-Depends)

Hi spidernik84,

It doesn't look like any of the checklist items were marked or where we can get the package to do our own testing. Were you able to perform these items during your backport request? If so, please check off what was done and any complications/alterations you may have had to do.

That would be much appreciated and would help speed up the backport process.
