With multiple VPN definitions in NM (vpnc, openvpn, etc) it isn't possible to start more than a single vpn. As soon as one is connected, all others are greyed out.

This is not the case with gnome 2 or 3, and there shouldn't be such a limitation from the base OS POV

I do not see why Mate should limited vpn connection in nm-applet, which is not a Mate application.

I don't know for sure where it gets limited, but it does grey out everything as soon as there is a single connection established. I can of course still open connections via the CLI, but that's not the point. Also, if I re-login into gnome3, I don't have this problem at all, which leads me to localizing this to something to do with MATE. If there's any additional information required, please let me know

Are those packages installed?
network-manager-applet
NetworkManager-adsl
NetworkManager-bluetooth
NetworkManager-l2tp
NetworkManager-openconnect
NetworkManager-iodine-gnome
NetworkManager-openswan-gnome
NetworkManager-openvpn-gnome
NetworkManager-pptp-gnome
NetworkManager-vpnc-gnome

As is said in forum gnome-shell don't use nm-applet, gnome-shell has an own internal applet.
So, you can't compare gnome3 with Mate.
For verifing you can test nm-applet in xfce.

I'm not comparing, just pointing out the difference between the two desktops I use.

If this is a problem with a package outside Mate, where should I file the BZ?

Package list looks good.
[rave@mother ~]$ rpm -qa network-manager-applet
network-manager-applet-1.0.6-5.fc22.x86_64
This is the right component.
Personal i do not use a vpn connecting so it seems to be a good idea to file out a BZ to see what NetworkManager folks thinks about.
I will leave this report a while open, please link the BZ to this one.

We will re-open the report if nm-applet maintainer says it is Mate related.
Btw. you can verify that if starting another desktop like xfce or lxde which use the same applet.

I tried with Cinnamon, it worked there. If I install xfce or lxde, I'll update the results here
