Bug Description

After updating packages, I rebooted the system to load the new libc. ON reboot I discovered after login that I was unable to connect any configured VPNs because NetworkManager showed no VPNs.

I eventually figured out that clicking "Enable Networking" to disable and re-enable networking caused NetMan to reload and THEN I could see my VPNs.
