And you are also using gnome-shell and have configured "Always ask" for
the password? Note sure if this problem exists only recently, but here
are the versions I used:

    gnome-shell version 3.4.1-3
    networkmanager version
    networkmanager-pptp version

As I understand it, networkmanager-pptp uses a gnome-shell service which
in turn calls back a networkmanager-pptp specific password dialog. How
convoluted. I do not claim to understand all the mechanisms behind it.
But if you do not see this with the exact same setup, that would be
stranger still.

Good to know. Thanks.
