Hello all,

could someone explain why the Process OVPN MimeHandler is active if no VPN is not used and not configured?
Every time that i shut it down, then it will be restarted.

That could let more resource free, if not needed process are not called .
Furthermore if an interface is still in beta state (and that is announce as known issue).
Then it should be judicious to make as option to activate or deactivate it.
No idea what could happen on the system if it's not released (beta state)...

Edit 26.10.2017:
I notice that the "OVPN MimeHandler" application start if we open the settings App.
And get closed if we close the settings app.
And the most buggy thing that happen is, the settings app will be killed if we kill the "OVPN MimeHandler" app. That should not happen too.

Edit 18.11.2017:
Phenomenon still in 2.1.3.7

Edit 22.02.2018:
Ask me if a fix is planned for the Sfos 2.1.4?
on a JP1 the Memory is really tight, and the free place is precious, so that is unhandy that some unused Service hold place. That irritating me that apps that i need are closed from oomk for this reason.

Edit 04.05.2018:
Still in 2.1.4.14

Have a nice sail

@chris.adams many thanks for your reaction. I'm a little bit surprised that is in fact not a normal behavior.
Then if you or your colleg at jolla need more info, then you/they have just to ask...
