Hi Noel,

Well, it isn't just a bug in the UI, it actually seem to behave as it's 
connected and therefore blocking all Internet access on the phone.
This is a kind of critical bug, I would say, wouldn't you?
Today it happened again, the Strongswan server must have had some issues 
so the connection went down however Strongswan Android client reported 
hours later still that it was "connected", and evidently for all those 
hours I had no internet access on my phone...

This should be fixed asap, where can I report the bug?

It just sits there and if for example you route everything from the client internet stops working on the phone, wihtout even noticing because Strongswan report it still as connected.
