Package: network-manager-kde
Version: 1:0.9~svn1141976-1
Severity: grave
Tags: upstream
Justification: renders package unusable

When trying to use VPN or manual settings with Knetwork Manager it crashes. KDE 
bug 215080 has been open since 2009-11-18 and 
is no where
being resolved. Please do not include this buggy package in stable, but provide 
a workaround
of using network-manager-gnome instead. I've set-up network-manager-gnome on my 
KDE install
and it works fine. I reverted back after months in hopes that the bug had been 
fixed, but
it has not.

Closing this bug. It does not occur with plasma widget and the tray 
application has already been removed from sid/wheezy.
