When trying to connect to a Cisco VPN with network manager applet in Xfce using openconnect, it fails to connect. The openconnect part works, but network manager never "sees" the connection and ends up terminating it. When run from the command line, things work fine.

I downgraded to the stable versions of networkmanager (1.10.2-1) and networkmanager-applet (1.8.6-3) and it works fine. This makes me think it is a bug in the current version of these packages that arch is building.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
This task depends upon

Same problem with Juniper VPN connections on network-manager-applet 1.8.11dev+12+ga37483c1-1 and networkmanager 1.10.8-1. openconnect from the terminal works just fine.

Is the issue still valid for you?
