Bug Description

This means that a panel crash causes the network manager icon to disappear by the time it re-appears.

The exit status is 0.

Having the application not quit on notification area exit would rectify the situation, as notification icons persist across notification area lifespans.

I've changed the status, since it was rejected because its part of 'universe' and with Feisty, it no longer is. It is installed _by default_. I'm also trying to find all duplicates and point them here...

It still might have nothing to do with the applet itself, but with gnome-panel, i'm not sure. Maybe a developper can enlighten us about his? So we know which package is to blame.

I also suggest that somebody sets the priority to low. Gnome-panel crashes are not supposed to happen anyway.

Still experiencing this with Feisty. The whole nm-applet program quits, it doesn't just hide the notification icon.

I should also note that it exits cleanly, with an exit status of 0.

removing the notification area is enought to make the process exit ( https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/network-manager/+bug/114580 )

Would it be possible to get this fixed in time for the Hardy release? Post-beta I'm still suffering from a Workspace Switcher bug that causes the GNOME panel to crash several times a day and I would like to be able to configure the network even after it happens ;)
