GSM connection message too long in nm-applet

Bug #330608 reported by Cody Russell on 2009-02-17
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
network-manager-applet (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

When you connect to a GSM network, Network Manager puts up a notification bubble with:
* title "Connection Established" (with upper-case "e")
* body "You are now connected to '%s'" OR "You are now connected to the GSM network."

This text is unnecessarily long, and the 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 network) OR "GSM network"
* body "Connection established" (with lower-case "e").
