[Pkg-utopia-maintainers] Bug#432322: network-manager: package upgrade kills network connections every time

Package: network-manager
Version: 0.6.4-8+b1
Severity: important

I have network-manager installed on a (currently) headless
box. That might seem like madness, but I just did a default
desktop install and later repurposed the machine as a sid

The last two times that the network-manager package has
been upgraded, the process of doing so has killed my active
network connections, including the ssh session with the
controlling tty for the aptitude upgrade process:

    Preparing to replace libdaemon0 0.10-1 (using .../libdaemon0_0.11-0.2_i386.deb) ...
    Unpacking replacement libdaemon0 ...  Preparing to replace dbus-x11 1.1.1-1 (using .../dbus-x11_1.1.1-3_i386.deb) ...
    Unpacking replacement dbus-x11 ...
    Preparing to replace dbus 1.1.1-1 (using .../archives/dbus_1.1.1-3_i386.deb) ...
    Stopping network connection manager:
    NetworkManagerDisconnecting: Timeout, server not responding.

Please try and avoid this happening.
