Always I want to edit a network-connection(WiFi, VPN, eth etc.) I get a log-message something like

May 2 21:39:19 mylaptop NetworkManager[925]: <info>  [1462217959.6967] audit: op="connection-update" uuid="850afb13-cf82-402c-af7a-80408324329a" name="myname1" result="fail" reason="connection.gateway-ping-timeout: can not set property: value "32497520" of type 'guint' is invalid or out of range for property 'gateway-ping-timeout' of type 'guint'"

which seems to be a false default value of a variable inside the network-manager? How to solve this problem? Is this a bug of the network-manager?

Additional information:

me@mylaptop:/etc/NetworkManager$ NetworkManager --version
1.1.93

After looking under /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections, I found all my connections. In every connection there is another gateway-ping-timeout, but I cannot edit this variable within the plasma network manager. So I think anywhere in the communication between the Plasma desktopapplication and the NetworkManager there is a fault.?!

This bug has been reported to KDE and they have provided a patch to the networkmanager-qt package. I am looking for people to test it. If you can install one of the following packages (one is for amd64 and the second is i386)

https://launchpad.net/~clivejo/+archive/ubuntu/xenial/+files/libkf5networkmanagerqt6_5.18.0-0ubuntu2~ubuntu16.04~ppa1_amd64.deb

https://launchpad.net/~clivejo/+archive/ubuntu/xenial/+files/libkf5networkmanagerqt6-dbg_5.18.0-0ubuntu2~ubuntu16.04~ppa1_i386.deb

Please let me know if the patched package solves your problem.
