Nm-applet icon problem


I have a problem with the nm-applet icon in Manjaro i3wm Community Edition.

Sometime even if I am connected to my wifi it shows the not-connected-icon. When I then click on it, I can't see any Wifinetworks. I can only click "Disconnect".

A workaround is to killall nm-applet and then nm-applet. But that is pretty annoying.

Can anybody help me?

The only 'fix' is downgrade right now ... or write a script for disable/enable on wake from suspend
