Bug Description

Just installed kubuntu saucy (13.10) beta 1 and upgraded to the latest packages from the repositories.

One thing I need is an openvpn client to connect to my openvpn server, not use this connection as the default, but pass some routes through the tunnel. so I did an "apt-get install network-manager-openvpn" and then I used the network manager plasma widget to configure it.

However, the additional routes are not saved in the configuration file of the connection.

If I add the routes manually in the network manager config file of the specific connection it works fine.
The corresponding line is the "route1" line in the [ipv4] section.

/etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/myOpenVPNconnection
...
...
[ipv4]
method=auto
route1=192.168.200.0/22,0.0.0.0,0
never-default=true
may-fail=false

Once upstream releases a plasma-nm bug fix release, we can get it SRU'd into Saucy.
