Description Nalin Dahyabhai 2014-02-06 18:44:48 UTC
Description of problem:
NetworkManager-vpnc passes the --pid-file option and its value as a single element of vpnc's argv[], causing the option to not be recognized by vpnc's option parsing logic, which expects them to be two consecutive arguments.
