Binary package hint: network-manager-vpnc

I'm using Kubuntu feisty (development branch) on x86_64 architecture.

First I had installed packages network-manager and knetworkmanager. Then I installed package network-manager-vpnc for connecting to VPN.
After reboot in knetworkmanager appeared new sub menu VPN connections with one enabled menu item "Configure VPN...". After selecting this item nothing happened.

With strace I found that result of selecting this menu item is start
program nm-vpn-properties which was not installed.

After that I installed package network-manager-gnome and I found that
missing binary is inside of this package.

I assumed that there is error in packaging network-manager-gnome and
network-manager-vpnc and some files included in network-manager-gnome
should be in network-manager-vpnc that it can work with knetworkmanager.

After configuring new VPN, this VPN connection did not appeared in
knetworkmanager's menu even after reboot.

Installed packages:
knetworkmanager                               0.1-0ubuntu9
network-manager                               0.6.4-6ubuntu3
network-manager-gnome                         0.6.4-6ubuntu3
network-manager-vpnc                          0.6.4svn2422-0ubuntu2
