    Exclamation Network Manager sometimes missing options.....

    Hey guys, this is a weird one and only started happening a month after I did a clean install of 12.04....Anyway, some times when I boot up the PC and login, Network Manager is missing 95% of the stock options from the dropdown menu (ex: current network info, vpn connections, etc).

    A quick sudo service network-manager restart fixes the problem but it is annoying nonetheless. Happens at least 25% of the time (upon logging in) but that seems to be increasing....Anyone seen this before or know how to fix it? Thanks!

    Has nobody heard of this or experienced it themselves using the desktop version of 12.04 (x64)?

    200+ views and nobody else is getting this? I still am...Sometimes when I go to connect to my VPN server it is missing 90% of the regular options available from the dropdown menu

    Yes, I confirm that it happens quite frequently on my system with Ubuntu 12.04 64 bits. I recall this problem existed also before this version. But you don't even need a terminal, you can simply stop (disable) and start (enable)the network manager with the options that are left on the menu.
