Problem with network-manager-vpnc


I use Network-Manager, and the nm-applet to connect to wireless networks (even WPA protected ones). At the university, I have to use VPN for cisco servers, so I can connect by doing the following, and everything is good.
sudo vpnc UniversityProfile
I decided I needed a GUI because the university kicks me off every 10 minutes. So I got the network-manager-vpnc plugin, I manage to connect to the VPN, but when i try to browse the internet, I get the university page telling me to connect to the VPN. I realized, there's a routing table difference between doing "vpnc UniversityProfile" in the terminal, and using the network-manager-vpnc plugin.

vpnc routing table:
-------------------------- dev eth1  scope link  src  mtu 1500 advmss 1460 hoplimit 64 dev eth1  proto kernel  scope link  src 
default dev tun0  scope link

-------------------------------- via dev eth1 dev eth1  proto kernel  scope link  src 
default dev tun0  scope link
So the vpnc routing table works, but the network-manager-vpnc doesn't. How would I go about fixing the network-manager-vpnc plugin?

Thanks for your time,
