Hi Jean-Claude,

Are you using the french version?
There used to be a problem with the swedish version in that it had the
same word in the list for both connect and disconnect. So it would look
like the button never changed. I have fixed that in the swedish version
but my french is non existant... I can launch it and have my wife check
the french version and if its missing I'll ask her for a new word.

On a side note I think its good if we stay away from buttons that have
different meaning in different situations. I would prefer two buttons,
one for connect and one for disconnect. One of those should be disabled
according to the traffic situation.
