Public bug reported:
Binary package hint: knetworkmanager
I'm using KNetworkManager with OpenVPN, using X.509 certificates for VPN
When I attempt to activate the VPN session, nothing prompts me for an
X.509 passphrase, and in the end the VPN activation fails. This is
printed in the logs:

Note the 15 second delay before the line with «ERROR» - it probably
nm-applet (from network-manager-gnome) had no such problems; it will pop
up a dialogue box to get the passphrase, and passes it on to OpenVPN,
which proceeds to successfully activate the connection. So this bug has
to be in KNetworkManager.
This is on a freshly updated Intrepid alpha-2 installation of Kubuntu.
