Wireless-connected message in nm-applet is unnecessarily long

Bug Description

When you connect to a wireless network, Network Manager puts up a notification bubble with:
* title "Connection Established"
* body "You are now connected to the wireless network %s".

This text is unnecessarily long, and the wireless network name arguably should be more prominent because it is more variable while "Connection established" is always the same.

Instead, the bubble should appear with:
* title "%s" (just the name of the wireless network)
* body "Connection established" (with lower-case "e").

this seems to be a (partial) dupe for bug 328572 ... also this patch seems to be against 0.7 and not 0.7.1? will take the patch from the other bug. if that was wrong let me know ;).

It doesn't seem that this was ever fixed, so I'm not sure that it's a duplicate. I'm not sure how to re-open it yet either though. ;)

This patch swaps the positions of the strings, and it changes "Connection Established" to "Connection established" (lowercase 'e')
