severity #511596 important
retitle #511596 Won't connect with network-manager disconnected or stopped

I have tracked the problem down to me having network-manager installed, but
not using it. I have written my own script to connect to faculty wireless
network since I found network-manager to be misbehaving.

In any case:

empathy_idle_set_presence: NM not connected

It is apparent this affects only a small number of users (either you use
n-m, or you have it uninstalled): for this reason, I'll take the honor of
reducing severity to important. I still don't find it deserves "normal",
since it DOES affect users.

I have n-m installed just-in-case I need something, but I don't find it
particularly reliable. Ergo, I use my own script. And then, although I am
connected to wlan, just because n-m thinks I'm not, empathy also refuses to
connect. Same thing happens if I /etc/init.d/network-manager stop.

This was already encountered by some users, but apparently not perceived as
important by upstream[1] since it uses network manager only "if you have it
