I missatached the file. Somehow i had an old connman patch lying in the same 
directory and attached the wrong file. (Unfortunatly it was a patch which 
caused enought confusion already... if i would be beliving i would say this 
thing is cursed ;-).

Below is the patch which fixes the problem but as this condition is done on 
purpose i wonder what side effects there might lie.

Sorry for the confusion
