NetworkManager ignores changes to PPP settings

Changes applied to the PPP tab (in Mobile Broadband) in the NetworkManager are ignored. I expected the changed parameters to be set and saved. Instead the changes were ignored. By clicking OK in the NetworkManager, a lot of entries without values are send to gconf.

How to reproduce: Open the NetworkManager, click on tab "Mobile Broadband", click on button "Edit" (a connection must already exists), click on tab "Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP)", change something like "Allow TCP header compression" and click on OK. Click on "Edit" again and see the old, unchanged settings.

With gconf-editor (in /system/networking/connections/NUMBER/ppp) one can set the values manually and the next time the tab is opened, the NetworkManager will show the current settings. So settings are read, at least.

I do not know. I am not using Ubuntu anymore. But with my description in the initial bugreport, you should be able to check or reproduce the bug yourself.
