Default mobile broadband connections with plasma-widget-networkmanagement

Hi,

mobile broadband connections seem to be broken with the plasma-widget-
networkmanagement in 9.10 and probably also with our devel release. This
problem is caused by a bug in knetworkmanager:

https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=191658

This issue is also present in other distributions, see:

http://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=59914

After someone wanted support for a not working mobile connection in #kubuntu-
netbook, Scott suggested to mention the following workaround somewhere:

First edit ~/.kde/share/apps/networkmanagement/connections/<connection> and
replace the 0 for MTU and MRU with 1440. After that services needs to be
restarted and mobile broadband connections are, at least for me and the user
in #kubuntu-devel working again.

Where is the right place to publish this workaround and is there a way to
solve this problem using kubuntu-default-settings in some way?

Regards Christian

The best place to publish the workaround is anywhere people can find
it, the most obvious one I can think of would be on our bug report in
launchpad for this upstream bug (open one if it doesn't exist).

The longer term answer is to [find someone to] fix the bug and
backport the fix as a SRU.

In the mean time (with no answer) I suggested Christain wikify it and it
lives here:

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/knetworkmanager/mobilebroadband

This came in handy as recent as today. I do think this ought to be
release noted until it's fixed.

I'll have a look at it next week.
