Incredible; we're definitely moving in the right direction.

We have had reports of a few regressions, that we need to get fixed before we 
can try it out in proposed. I have already send them upstream and we're 
working to get them fixed. One of them should already have been fixed by 
upstream; so I've added a new version to the PPA to get this confirmed. Please 
add that version and check that everything still is okay for you.

Could have been some mode-change lost in the communication between the widget 
and the network-manager backend. Or pure coincidence; there seem to be a lot 
of that around communicating with the network manager.
