Incoming VPN Connection causes networking icon to show as disconnected RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • This really isn't a huge problem, but more aesthetic in nature (but will eventually lead to misdiagnosis at some point I'm sure).  

    The issue is this:
    I set up an incoming VPN connection to Win 7.  When I connect (and it connects just fine) to it, the networking tray icon shows as if something is disconnected. That is, a red X shows in the lower right corner of the tray icon.  I found that if I delete my incoming connection the icon resets itself and stays normal, but when I add the incoming connection back and connect to it the icon shows as disconnected and stays that way until I delete it from the network connections.

    It certainly sounds like a bug to me, but if anyone can provide a workaround that'd be swell as it is quite distracting.
