Binary package hint: plasmoid-network-manager

The plasmoid-network-manager does not remember settings of prior configured wlan connections since about 1 week in jaunty.
How to reproduce:
Install the latest jaunty updates
Remove all hidden config files from home directories
Configure a wlan connection (to a listed SSID) within from the plasmoid or within from kde systemsettings and give this connection a name.
In my case the name was "ZuHause"
Enable password storage and setup kdewallet.

Networkmanager will immediately connect to the network and the applet shows "Connected to ZuHause".
At this time I can disconnect and disable wlan from the applet. Re-enabling the wlan module works fine and the applet shows immediately the configured connection "ZuHause", afterwards. Clicking on "ZuHause",  enabled the connection after entering the kdewallet password and work reliably.

Reboot the system

After the reboot the configured connection is shown within kde-systemsettings as "ZuHause" but it does not appear at the plasmoid. The plasmoid show only the SSID which is also "linked" to "ZuHause".
Clicking on the SSID demand for a newly configuration.
So every reboot the connection has to be configured again which results in many entries within kde-systemsettings and kdewallet.

The same happens with installed plasma-widget-network-manager instead of
