I'm sorry to hear about it. Forgive me, really, for what I'm about to say...
I'm probably in a really bad mood after the whole Firefox x Debian debate
(or fiasco, take it as you wish). Process exist to help people manage stuff,
not otherwise. NetworkManager is great but (as a user) I'm constantly
reminded about its limitations (and bugs), and it's really strange to be
using a open source application that get stuck in time because "process"
turns out to be more important than "user needs".

Please - this is not a flamebait, nor a troll... perhaps I'm ranting a
little bit more than usual. But that's my sincere opinion, and I felt I
should state it here, in the hope that someone will listen. I still hope so.
