Package: kvpnc
Version: 0.9.0-1
Severity: important

When starting kvpnc from the KDE menu, I am asked for root's password.
After entering it I receive this popup error message:

DCOP communications error (kvpnc)

There was an error setting up inter-process communications for KDE.
the message returned by the system was:

Could not read network connection list.

Please check that the "dcopserver" program is running!

and from the following one can see that root is not running a

solace:~# ps auwx | grep dcop
mwilkins  3478  0.0  0.1  25548  2640 ?        S    Oct22   0:00 dcopserver 
[kdeinit] --nosid
root     28188  0.0  0.0   3364   732 pts/2    S+   19:14   0:00 grep dcop

kvpnc does start up fine though, and I can make my pptp connection
fine, but it is impossible to disconnect the connection which is a
major PITA.
