The crash only occurs when it is successful, watching syslog shows the vpn connection is successful. No crash occurs when it fails to connect to the vpn. The crash does not occur on the same system using the old plasma network manager.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect to a VPN via the widget
Plasma crashes and does not restart like happens on normal plasma crashes.
Plasma doesn't crash and the network icon changes to show its successful vpn connection.
The system is running Kubuntu 13.10 amd64 and plasma-nm-0.0~git20130816-0ubuntu2. There is a similar, possibly duplicate bug, https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=321392.

Prevention before possible crash when we are trying to get incorrect setting from VPN connection

Could you please test it with the change above and when it still crashes, can you please provide some backtrace?
Should be fixed. Reopen please this bug in the case you have still problems. Thanks
