If you need to do anything more than 'killall nm-applet' and starting
nm-applet again, then it's quite unlikely that this patch really fixes
the issue -- I did notice this issue *once* on my system yesterday and
logged off and back in, from there the agent could be detected. This
doesn't seem to me like either shell version detection or something
related to upgrading (given I wasn't doing an upgrade at all).

Since then, I've tried to kill off my VPN or terminate it normally,
neither method works to reproduce the problem: I can immediately start
it again, and I do get the authentication dialog and I am able to
reconnect normally.

Anyone can add further information on this bug, or can verify that
without the patch, stopping nm-applet and restarting it will make things
work again, or can make things work without needing to reboot (only
restarting nm-applet, with the patch applied)?

There's still a branch for 0.9.10, 0.9.8, etc. It would be best if
someone was to report the bug upstream or otherwise contact upstream
developers to get a review of the patch.
