I spend my days hopping between VPN connections in Ubuntu 10.10 and this is becoming severely annoying. What happens is that every once in a while - typically several times a day - when I click on the networking icon in the top bar, the nm-applet's VPN Connections flyout menu is gone. (Said menu item is still there, it just doesn't have a submenu or do anything when clicked.) Every time I
killall nm-applet and start it again, which usually brings the menu back.
Has anybody here experienced this and been able to fix it?
