network-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Ubuntu : 9.04
network manager : 0.7.1~rc4.1.cf199a964-0ubuntu2 0

When you connecte with gnome-ppp, network-manager didn't see that you are connect, and lot of software thinks you are offline (pidgin, epiphany, firefox, ...)

Can you may me integrate gnome-ppp inside network-manager (like a new tab), it's will be useful

After battle to find and install a good driver, nothing work like you want

To best way, i find, to remove the 'offline warning' for each program is to remove network-manager package in synaptic, but when i am not at home and when i want use wireless, i should reinstall it :/
