Summary: KNetworkManager shows wrong status of connection in
popup hint.

OS/Version: openSUSE 11.3

If you setup some custom wired connection in knetworkmanager with all
parameters (ip addr, mask, ...) specified manually (and valid) and activate it,
the popup hint window keeps saying "Preparing to connect" forever, whereas in
fact it is connected (and going to "properties" one can see "connected").

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do not plug in network cable yet.
2. Setup some custom wired connection in KNetworkManager with all manual
(correct) values (ip addr, mask, ...)
3. Now plug in the cable and then click on your new connection to activate it.
4. Verify that connection really works (ping something, etc)
5. Click on network manager's tray icon so that menu with connections pops up.
6. Put mouse pointer over the line with your connection (but don't click), so
that a hint with status pops up. On my box the status keeps saying "Preparing
to connect" instead of "Connected".

Actual Results:
Network manager's hint window shows wrong status of connection ("Preparing to
connect" instead of "Connected").

Expected Results:
Network manager's hint window showing correct status of connection ("Connected"
as long as it is really connected)
