Fix for Memory Leak in Ubuntu's NetworkManager

The nasty memory leak in NetworkManager, existing since gutsy times I believe, is finally fixed in the intrepid packages. The bug fixed version 0.6.6-0ubuntu7 is not yet uploaded it seems, but should appear at the intrepid packages link soon.

Correction: The packages seem to be uploaded, but not shown on the linked webpage yet. So just replace ubuntu6 with ubuntu7 and can download it right now.

Second update: The fixed version is no longer available for download from official servers. The file names were network-manager_0.6.6-0ubuntu7_i386.deb and network-manager_0.6.6-0ubuntu7_amd64.deb.

I found the files at http://ubuntu.interlegis.gov.br/ubuntu/pool/main/n/network-manager/.

Just download them and then install them with e.g.
sudo dpkg -i network-manager_0.6.6-0ubuntu7_i386.deb

That fixed the problem just fine for me.
