I looked in System Settings. Wasn't there at that time. But good to hear it's now.

No. Thanks to tools like Firesheep, taking over unencrypted connections is a really big 
security risk because it's so easy to do for anybody. If [Event/connfailed] also covers 
that already established VPN connections are lost, it should be active. Or do you 
constantly look at the systray? I guess you're not.
If [Event/connfailed] does not cover lost VPN connections, then I agree it makes little 
sense to have it.
