Default knetworkmanager interface regression in 4.5.1

After upgrading to 4.5.1 I've noticed that network entries in the
knetworkmanager tray icon menu are shown as empty lines. Connections
confiured to start automatically are still started, but I can't do
anything with the menu entries: they don't have tooltips and nothing
happens when I click on them (so I can't establish a non-automatic
connection).
It's a sid system updated from qt-kde.d.o.

Try using plasma-widget-networkmanagement instead of the
knetworkmanager tray icon.

Do you think plasma-widget-networkmanagement is superior to
knetworkmanager?

Yes, it is, and it is the recommended network manager frontend in kde
now. This knetworkmanager version was just developed as a temporary
solution for some distributions that wanted a stable network manager
frontend when the plasma widget was still unstable and unfit for a
stable distribution release. Now this is not a problem anymore. Also
note that kde in squeeze has plasma-widget-networkmanagement as the
default frontend (recommended from kde-standard).

Thank you for clarifying me this topic, I didn't know anything about it.

It doesn't show any connections in the right part of the popup window and
it even doesn't automatically connect to a wifi network which has "Connect
automatically" property set.

That was fixed by one more reboot.
