When connecting, the UI queues up some VPN states
- connect vpn
- observe that connection icon changes to "connecting" (yellow)
- the status poller gets stuck (we're blocking on vpn_connect)
- the state transitions gets queued up (which cause some flicker to "off" state)
- after successful connection, all the states are displayed (connected, green).
by watching the bitmaskd logs, it can be seen that no connecting->off transition has happened, so this is an UI issue.
