Bug Description

Option to connect to PAN network in network indicater in status disappears forever when device disconnects accidently. Eg. When remote device goes out of range, Remote device's bluetooth is powered off. I'm connecting to PAN network of an Android device. The otion don't reappear again even when the device is up and running and in range.

To fix I have to disable wireless, disable networking, enable networking, enable wireless in that order.
