nm applet displays inaccurate notification when user disconnects from VPN

Bug #1504792 reported by Casey on 2015-10-10

Bug Description

When the user voluntarily disconnects from a vpn connection, network manager displays the error message "VPN Connection Failed." See the attached screenshot. However, since a disconnection in this case is a success, not a failure, something more neutral like "Successfully disconnected" would be more appropriate.

I am seeing this behaviour since the 'Disconnect from VPN' menu entry was removed. Was that removal intentionally? It used to be possible to click that (which disconnected the VPN connection without this 'Connection Failed' message).
