Let’s just say that GDM is a good indicator of someone also using NM.

It ‘simply’ drops all network connections, though I have to admit I
don’t know wether they are automatically re-established. I also have
to admit that I actually use NM because it is the most convenient way
to connect to various Wifi networks (university, home, friends etc…),
mobile 3G networks, Ethernet networks and run scripts accordingly
Of course, this would also work with guessnet and a bunchload of
other, smaller, and less error-prone tools, but the resulting script
hell created by me would definitely be more damageable.
You can't carve your way to success without cutting remarks.
