When specifying a usergroup for the VPN gateway (in the form, the usergroup is used for the initial login through the dialog, but not forwarded to NetworkManager for the actual VPN connection. This causes the VPN connection to either fail or register as connected and not work properly.

Additional info:
* Upstream bug ticket:
* Upstream commit to fix the issue:

The fix is currently on the master branch, so it will likely be incorporated in the next major release. (5.22)

Steps to reproduce:
1. Connect to a VPN with a usergroup in the gateway address.
2. Initial login through the dialog succeeds.
3. After the initial login, NetworkManager will either fail to establish the subsequent connection or it won't work properly.
