Package: network-manager-vpnc
Version: 0.8.1-1
Severity: important
Tags: upstream

I am running Debain Sid.

The KDE system tray utility knetworkmanager (package as network-manager-kde) 
the ability to control a computer's network connections via the network-manager 
framework.  One part of this framework is support for Cisco VPN.

I have configured a Cisco VPN connection and the knetworkmanager tray shows 
option when I right-click on the system-tray icon.  By default, the VPN is not 
enabled, but can be enabled by selecting the VPN in the knetworkmanager display 
when I right-click on the system-tray item).  When I enable the Cisco VPN, the 
knetworkmanager crashes.  It does this every time I enable the Cisco VPN.

It is unclear to me whether the problem is with the network-manager-kde package 
or the 
network-manager-vpnc package.

The Cisco settings I have configured has worked in the past (with a previous 
of the software), so I suspect that either the API of the vpnc package has 
changed or 
the KDE network-manager package has introduced a bug.

I have seen a couple of upstream bugs that sound similar to this issue in the 
KDE bug 
tracker.  They are for different distributions, so I believe this issue is not

The reporter himself said [1] that the problem does not occur with plasma 
widget. Closing this since the tray application no longer exists in
