Well I haven't used it in GNOME since the recent icon changes, but assuming 
that wasn't a change...

It showed a yellow lock swooshing into place a few times as it was 
authenticating.  Once the tunnel was authenticated and up, the lock would sit 
there, on the right side of the connected icon (I've only done this with 
wireless, I assume it'd put the yellow lock on top of the wired connection 
icon as well).  If the VPN dropped, the yellow lock would go away, and you'd 
get a notification saying that the VPN was disconnected.

The command line client, on the other hand, dies silently.  Which is annoying.  
It might go to syslog, I don't know, but it doesn't attempt to send a dbus 
call or anything to bring up a notification.
