           Summary: Gaim (now Pidgin) needs a manual button for
                    online/offline mode
           Product: openSUSE 10.2
           Version: Final
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: openSUSE 10.2
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P5 - None
         Component: Other
        AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
        ReportedBy: crispin@xxxxxxxxxx
         QAContact: qa@xxxxxxx
          Found By: Development


Because of inadequacies in NetworkManager (can't handle PPP connections) I
sometimes have to manually establish a network connection while NM thinks I am
still off line. Gaim believes NM and refuses to connect to chat, even thou
there is routable network. I could not find a button in Gaim to override the
online/offline mode.

Firefox had a similar problem, but it has a manual over ride for online/offline
mode. Gaim/pidgin should have such a feature, so that it can deal with this and
future limitations in NM.
