NM displays "disconnected..." notification even after connection is reestablished

Bug Description

Expected behavior: After disconnecting computer from network, notification appears saying "Disconnected, you are now offline". On reconnection to network, notification disappears and is replaced by "Reconnected to network" or words to that effect. This notification then ideally disappears without needing to be manually acknowledged.

Actual behavior: Notification appears after disconnecting from network, but does not go away until manually acknowledged, even after connecting to a network again; at that point, it is telling the user something that is false.

Environment: Ubuntu 11.10, running Gnome Shell (Gnome3), with network-manager-gnome
