    Losing option for VPN connections on networking icon

    Hi all,

    I'm a recent convert to Xbuntu from fedora and linuces and am liking it a lot. Especially, the LTS plan for 12.04.

    I have a working VPNC setup to be able to connect to work and for a while the 'VPN Connections' option was visible when clicking the networking icon on the toolbar. However, recently it has disappeared.

    I've found that disabling and re-enabling networking brings back the option.

    Anyone know how I can make sure this option is constantly available and isn't disappearing on each reboot?
    TIA

    It happens also to me, I think it's a bug. I "solved" it by adding a new vpn connection (it seems that if you've 2 vpn connections configured the bug disappears).
